OPTIONS

Options, Inc. is a very important organization here in Burke County.  Options mission is to empower victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence through advocacy, shelter, support and community education. This is accomplished by providing sanctuary and compassionate services that promote empowerment, prevention, healing and recovery and they are in desperate need of donations.  Due to the COVID-19, they are down $60,000 because they were unable to hold their annual Art of Chocolate fundraiser which brings in thousands every year.  Please follow the attached link http://www.icontact-archive.com/archive?c=442602&f=13754&s=14541&m=386063&t=0937b992be2e83689fab69f49f4b804d9b9ccaf3eda8ee367378d3bb3d69131f to participate in their “500 Who Care Campaign” to help support the ever growing need of keeping domestic violence victims safe.
