(Middletown, RI):  For the past few months People’s Credit Union employees have been raising money to buy gift cards for the women at local domestic violence resource centers.  The Women’s Resource Center of Newport & Bristol Counties was one of the recipients.  Employees delivered the gift cards to the center on Thursday, December 15. 

This is the fifth year People’s employees have donated gift cards to domestic violence centers during the holidays.  The gift cards help the women buy gifts for their families and make the holiday season a more enjoyable one.  People’s employee run Community Enhancement Committee (CEC) planned and organized the fundraising.  In total $700 was raised by employees through dress down days. 

The Women’s Resource Center of Newport & Bristol Counties empowers victims of domestic violence and their children through individual and social change.  Education, support and advocacy programs are offered to assist victims to gain control of their lives, exercising their right to live without fear in their own homes. 

“We are so happy we can continue to help local victims of domestic violence, especially this time of year.  Our goal is to make things a little easier for them during the holidays,” commented Tracy Glover, Chair of the CEC.   

The Domestic Violence Resource Center of South County also received gift cards.
