IDAHO STINKER STORES KICK-OFF PIECE OF HOPE FUNDRAISING AND AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

Helping children in our community access services they need to heal from domestic violence and sexual abuseA Piece of Hope Puzzle Piece Childs Smiling face

Boise, ID – The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) is proud to announce a collaboration with Stinker Stores and five other Domestic Violence service providers for the “Piece of Hope” fundraising and awareness campaign taking place April 9 to May 6, 2018, at all Stinker locations throughout Idaho.

Customers at all Stinker locations will be able to donate funds as well as obtain information about organizations in Idaho communities to benefit children who have been impacted by domestic violence and/or sexual abuse. This will mean funding services and programs throughout the state that specifically focus on the children who are being exposed to violence in their homes or are being subjected to abuse themselves.

Research indicates that each year millions of children in the U.S. are at risk of exposure to domestic violence. And when there is intimate partner violence (IPV) in the home, the risk of abuse to the child increases dramatically.

The following community programs are participating:

  • YWCA – Lewiston
  • Advocates Against Family Violence – Caldwell
  • Rose Advocates – Weiser, Payette, Emmett, McCall, Council, Cascade
  • Women’s and Children’s Alliance – Boise
  • The Advocates – Hailey
  • Family Services Alliance – Pocatello, Lava Hot Springs, Downey, Soda Springs and American Falls
