For Hendricks County we are going to be serving at Sheltering Wings, a domestic violence shelter serving Hendricks County and surrounding areas. Our volunteers will be working to assemble furniture and assisting with other miscellaneous tasks at the shelter as the organization is renovating their kitchen facility and several bedrooms. Please dress in comfortable clothes and wear shoes you can work in. If you are only able to make it for a portion of this event, please note the time you plan to be there in the notes section of your registration.
Below are the goals of the organization:
- We provide a safe, 24-hour haven for women and their dependent children suffering the effects of domestic violence.
- We help victims of domestic violence build stable and independent lives through case management and mentoring programs.
- We address the physical and emotional needs of children who have witnessed or suffered abuse through crisis intervention, positive support, and education in healthy relationships.
- We strive to break the cycle of domestic violence by educating our community on its realities, actions they can take in response and resources available to those in unhealthy relationships.
When you register for this event, you will be participating with a group of Lilly Endowment Community Scholars, family, friends and community members. Please note that we will be taking photos/video at this event and plan to share them via our e-newsletter, website and social media channels. We may also submit photos/videos to the local press. By signing up to volunteer, you agree to allow the Lilly Scholars Network to use your voice, name, picture and other information about you for promotional, publicity, or organizational purposes.
As Lilly scholars we are incredibly grateful for the investments our communities made in our education, and we thank you for helping us pay it forward!
