Curves supports Advocates for Victims of Assault

DAILY NEWS STAFF REPORT

This holiday season members of Curves, the women’s fitness center in Summit County, are collecting household supplies to benefit the transitional and safe-house needs for Advocates for Victims of Assault.

These basic everyday necessities are essential to women and their children who have left their abusive homes to start a new life.

According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, each year an average of 4 million American women experience serious assault by a partner and three to four are murdered by a husband or boyfriend each day.

Curves will be collecting household supplies including such items as laundry detergent, paper products, dish soap, diapers/wipes, toiletries, and gift cards to City Market, Safeway, Target or Wal-Mart for the Advocates for Victims of Assault through Dec. 22.
