Eve's Place Inc. Donations

Signature Program: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention

Paradise Valley Junior Woman's Club once again showed their generosity for those in need during the holidays. Members shopped and donated financially to purchase items from Eve's Place Needs List. This nonprofit organization provides innovative and empowerment based programs to victims of domestic, sexual and teen dating abuse. They introduced the concept of a mobile advocacy program for victims throughout the Valley, expanded into the rural areas of AZ as well as the Navajo Nation.

As club we donated items that included household products, personal hygiene items, make up, diapers, nonperishable foods, holiday gift wrap and boxes.
