Throughout the year, the Center for Prevention of Abuse participates in and hosts a variety of special events and fundraisers. We invite you to mark your calendars, join us, and help us build a safe and peaceful community. All funds raised stay local and go directly toward client services.
Check back here to stay up-to-date with special events. If you are interested in volunteering at any special events, please click here.
Each year, generous members of our community purchase gifts for families that we serve who are in need. A “family” might be a single young person, a senior, a parent and children, or other. As a donor, you can indicate the size of family you’d like to purchase gifts for. These gifts may be the only ones that our families get during the holiday season and our clients are truly so grateful. If you want to help, but don’t want to adopt a family, please consider donating items from our General Wish List here. If interested in participating, please contact Celsy Young by Friday, November 8 at email@example.com or call 309-691-0551 ext. 237.
