The Caring Place Inc. recognizes October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. On October 14 from 5-7 p.m., The Caring Place Inc., is sponsoring Shop, Walk, and Read at the Butterfield Pavilion in Valparaiso.
At the event, Mayor Jon Costas will give a proclamation. Participants will make the journey of a victim of domestic violence- from the warning signs, what it takes for someone to leave, who is affected and how the community can help. The Clothesline Project will be up for attendees to view.
Author Kate Collins (The Flower Shop Mystery Series) has her pen ready to sign as she celebrates the release of her latest book, Dirty Rotten Tendrils. Representatives from Macy’s will be promoting Shop for a Cause, which takes place on Saturday, October 16 and coupon books will be available for $5 at Shop, Walk, and Read.
