Giving Hope Cocktail Hour
Stalking Awareness Month
January is Stalking Awareness Month. Please wear a silver ribbon to show your support for victims of stalking and for those working to end violence in our homes, communities, and our nation.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Please wear the teal ribbon to show your support for victims of sexual violence and for those working to end violence in our homes, communities, and our nation.
Bearing witness to Domestic and Sexual Violence
The Clothesline Project, which is held in conjunction with Victims Rights Week, is a visual display of shirts with written messages and/or illustrations that have been created by survivors and their families and friends. These shirts reflect their experiences and the impact violence has had on their lives. The purpose of the Clothesline project is to educate, to mourn those who have died as a result of this violence, and to bear witness to victims' courage to survive and heal.
We encourage all those who have been affected by domestic and sexual violence to make a shirt. There is no cost involved with making a shirt. All supplies are provided for you at the t-shirt making day and at the display.
You are welcome to join us at Bridges offices in Nashua and Milford to create a shirt.
If you would like more information about the Clothesline Project, please call the AmeriCorps Victim Assistance Program at 603-224-6466.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please wear the purple ribbon to show your support for victims of domestic violence and for those working to end violence and abuse in our homes, communities, and our nation.
Bridges will have displays at local libraries and bookstores with information about domestic violence. We will also have displays with topics including non-violence, conflict resolution, and challenging gender stereotypes. Bridges staff will be at these locations throughout the month of October to read stories and answer questions.
United Way Day of Caring
May and September
The Day of Caring takes place each September, and the Youth Day of Caring takes place each May. For one day, volunteers from companies and schools in the Greater Nashua and Souhegan Valley area take the day off to volunteer at area non-profit organizations. There are many generous volunteers who are willing to donate their time to Bridges on different projects in our office and the emergency shelter, including painting, property beautification, office work, and cleaning. We appreciate the great support from our community.
For more information about the Youth Day of Caring and Day of Caring, please refer to United Way of Greater Nashua web site at www.unitedwaynashua.org.
