The BeaLine November 2019

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

Gratitude is the word for November. This time of year, I find myself so grateful for all that I have in my life. I have a wonderful family, a great place to live, and a fabulous place to work. I just feel so humbled and honored to be at the WCA doing the work that we do each and every day.

I also know that there are a lot of individuals for whom this time of year is very difficult. They hear these messages about being grateful and Thanksgiving and families getting together—but they may not have a warm and loving family to go to. They may not have a home to go to.

When you are thinking about all the things you are grateful for, please also think about ways you can help support our clients. There are three very specific ways to help: donations of gift cards, items from the Wish List on our website, and the Giving Tree at the Grove Plaza. Gift cards allow our clients to regain some power as they purchase gifts and determine their own needs, our Wish List online is often  being updated with needs for our clients and items we may need to continue our work, and the Giving Tree is another way to ensure that everyone in our community gets the things they need for the holidays.

Thank you in advance for your support.

I wish for you and all your loved ones a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving month.
