October is Domestic Violence Awareness & Action Month
Family Crisis Network has provided coffee sleeves to shelter your cup of hot coffee or tea. You can find our coffee sleeves at Newport Pie & Coffee and Union Street Perk. They will have coffee specials for the month of October to show support for Domestic Violence Awareness.
This event has ended, please check back in around Sept/Oct 2023 to see what's happening then
Coffee for a Cause
During the month of October, we are partnering with various local businesses to help break the silence about domestic violence and bring awareness to the forefront.
Hunt for DV Rocks!
These hand decorated inspirational rocks have been placed around town - your job is to find them. When you bring your rock into our office, we will reward you with a $5 coffee token to take to Newport Pie & Coffee.
This event has ended, please check back in around Sept/Oct 2023 to see what's happening then - if you find any rocks, you can still come in and get your coffee token during office hours
And, you can keep your beautiful rock! #FCNDVAM22
"Just this bag" FCN has purchased purple reusable tote bags and provided them to various local stores including JB's Boutique, Shanty, Owen's Deli, and Seeber's Pharmacy. When you make a purchase at these stores, you will receive a bag at no charge. This campaign serves to remind us that sometimes a victim or family of domestic violence may have to flee a situation with literally just one bag of personal belongings.
This event has ended, please check back in around Sept/Oct 2023 to see what's happening then - continue shopping with your purple bag
Cocktails for a Cause
During the last week, or at some places for the whole month, a couple of our local businesses are getting creative with their cocktails, dedicating special combination drinks for Domestic Violence Action Month! Stop in at The Double Barrel for a Huckleberry Cream Ale or The Double Huckle Cocktail. The Edgewater Lounge also has something happening there, check it out!
