Domestic Violence Awareness Month CARES Boxes

1 in 3 families in Merced County will experience domestic violence. Oftentimes, survivors leave their abusers without essential items such as a change of clothes, diapers or hygiene items.

With your department, Coworkers, Student Group or Friends, sponsor a UC Merced CAREs Box of essentials for Survivors of violence entering the Valley Crisis Center Shelter during October Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
