National Domestic Violence Awareness Donation Drive

Every October National Domestic Violence Awareness Month is observed. National, state, and community organizations for violence prevention and victim services mark this month with various events in an effort to help end violence against women and their children.

During the week of October 12-16, Glen Ivy will be helping to raise awareness and donations at each of our locations and the donations will be given to local shelters.

  • Corona Hot Springs- Guests who bring in a new clothing item for any age will receive $10 off spa admission for the day. Donations will be going to the Casa De Paz shelter in Riverside, CA.

  • Brea- Guests who bring in new and unused toiletries will receive $10 off a 50 or 80 minute spa service. Toiletries must be valued at $5 or more. Donations will be going to the Women’s Transitional Living Center in Orange, CA.

  • Valencia- When guests mention that they would like to make a donation to domestic violence awareness, Glen Ivy will donate $10 of the service price to the Domestic Violence Shelter of Santa Clarita. Service must be a 50 or 80 minute service.

Remember, families who go to shelters often leave all of their possessions behind. Any donation will help them to feel secure in their new surroundings. Other ways to help raise awareness is to volunteer your time at a domestic violence agency, be supportive when a battered person tells her story, and be a loving and supportive parent.

At Glen Ivy we strive to elevate life’s experiences and here is your chance to help! We hope that you will join us in the creating awareness and celebrating the strength of battered women and their children.
