In lieu of a holiday party this year, the SVDC board has elected to instead spend our time and energy to support two local charities who are doing great work here in Santa Clara County: The Alum Rock Counseling Center (ARCC) and Next Door Solutions.
Alum Rock Counseling Center's mission is to heal families and inspire youth to reach their full potential, and Next Door Solutions' mission is to end domestic violence. They are the only stand-alone domestic violence agency in Santa Clara County.
We will be working with both groups by participating in ARCC's toy drive and Next Door Solutions' Winter Open House, both of which will be held in December. Opportunities for club members to donate needed items (such as toys, bedding, toiletries etc.) as well as make cash donations are available over the next few months. We also invite you to join the SVDC Executive Board in volunteering with each of these worthwhile organizations to support their respective holiday events.
We will be collecting donations at our next SVDC meeting. Please bring a new, unwrapped toy for the toy drive for ARCC, or bring diapers, soap, shampoo, lotions and body wash, etc. to donate to Next Door Solutions.
The SVDC eboard has generously agreed to match your donation dollar for dollar (up to $500 for each organization). This is a great opportunity to make your donation go twice as far in support of the great work done by ARCC and Next Door Solutions.
If you have any questions about our drive, please contact Coordinator Catherine Williams at email@example.com
Since 1971, NDS has helped thousands of survivors and families move out of crisis and violence and into safety, stability and self-sufficiency.
The path to end Domestic Violence begins with a single step...
