YES Says “No!” to Domestic Violence

October was Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It was also Make A Difference Day, and with a grant from the Charles H. Bassett Youth Foundation, YES Club students volunteered at A New Hope Center‘s domestic violence shelter. The students gained valuable life skills as they taped and painted three small rooms at the shelter and helped with a variety of other small projects around the shelter. They especially enjoyed chatting with a few of the residents and knowing that what they were doing, though small, really is important.

Leading up to their day of volunteering, the YES Club students did a household supplies drive. A New Hope Center provides basic household items and cleaning supplies to residents who are transitioning to live on their own. YES Club was able to collect several boxes, bags, and tubs of all purpose cleaners, laundry detergent, blankets, household linens, toiletries, and kitchen items.
