How does LBDI impact our community?
Funds raised are funneled directly back into services that help support women in our community affected by these situations. Last year we raised $6559 for the YWCA of Central Virginia to support their Domestic Violence Prevention Center and SARP.
This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 for the YWCA to support their Economic Empowerment Program through the Allstate Foundation, Domestic Violence Prevention Center, and the Sexual Assault Response Program.
