In support of survivors of domestic violence, Bartell Drugs is accepting donations for The Salvation Army’s Domestic Violence Programs, now through May 23.
Donations of any amount can be made with a cashier at 60 Bartell Drugs stores in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties.
Bartell’s is at 3902 A St. SE, Auburn, and at 12946 SE Kent-Kangley Road, Kent.
In 2014, The Salvation Army’s confidential programs directly served nearly 750 adults and children, and thousands more through the organization’s 24/7 telephone crisis line.
“From confidential counseling to housing for survivors, The Salvation Army provides critical resources and guidance for individuals and families dealing with domestic violence,” said Bartell Drugs’ Chairman George D. Bartell.
The Salvation Army’s Domestic Violence Programs include: a crisis line for-round the-clock advice and support, a confidentially located shelter for those fleeing dangerous situations, longer term transitional housing as families move to independent living, and a non-residential program for ongoing case management and support.
