Voices of Truth– This program, in conjunction with the Gardner Police Dept, is committed to support, educate, and provide resources for victims and survivors of domestic violence. It is so difficult for them during this time. The mothers want the gift of safety for their children to return home. To provide a sense of normalcy for the survivors, gift cards work extremely well.  It helps put control back into the survivor’s life.  They can pick their food, they can allocate money to be able to attend to debts that have accumulated, etc.  It’s that sense of one less thing to worry about or one thing they get to check off from their crisis reality. Please consider donating.
