October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Purple is the nationally recognized color associated with domestic violence.

In acknowledgement of how our community is coming together to fight the crime of domestic violence, Plumas Rural Services Domestic Violence Services would like to light up the town again this year!!

Domestic Violence Services staff will be handing out strands of purple lights to be placed in your storefront window as a show of solidarity to support victims of domestic violence. Staff will provide the lights and will help with displaying them in your storefront windows and are happy to take them down at the end of October.

By “Shining a Light” on domestic violence, we can bring this hidden subject out of the darkness and educate our community that help is available.

Family Movie Night will be hosted in three different Plumas County locations this year to promote family togetherness and healthy relationships. Popcorn, bottled water, and juice will be provided for the movie.

Domestic violence can lead to the loss of home and personal possessions. Oftentimes, when survivors leave a domestic violence situation, they have had to leave everything behind.  Basic commodities that we sometimes take for granted are no longer accessible.  Needs for their children and pets are abandoned, and money is more often than not limited or non-existent. By donating new or gently used items such as bedding, towel sets, personal hygiene items, or household essentials to our local shelter, you can help to meet the basic needs of survivors and their families as they come into and go out of the shelter. Donations can also be made by shopping our
Items purchased from our Idea List ship directly to PRS and the survivors we support. Not only is it easy to donate, it's tax deductible too. To ensure items you purchase for DV survivors ship correctly, please select "Plumas Rural Services" as the shipping address when you go to checkout.
