2019 Domestic Violence Awareness Activities Around the State

The Jan Manolis Family Safe Center in Huron has placed beautiful purple ribbons on the trees that border their main street, and they will remain the whole month of October. On Sunday, October 13th, they will host the “All the Pancakes You Can Eat” at the Elks Lodge.  They set up, wait tables and clean up, the Elks cook, and they share 50% of all the proceeds from that day with our program.  During the event, there are flyers on all the tables so people know where their money is going.  The Huron newspaper does an article about DV & SA sometime during this month.
