Five victim advocacy groups across South Central Kansas will receive help thanks to fundraisers that took place during National Crime Victims' Rights Week, which was observed during the week of April 22-27.
The theme for the week was "Extending the Vision: Reaching Every Victim," and it celebrated the visions behind the ideals and progress of serving all victims of crime.
During the week, agencies from around Kansas participated in various events such as walks and vigils. The highlight of the week was the "Wipe Out the Violence" fundraiser, in which almost $3,500 was raised. In addition, paper and hygiene products were also donated.
All of the groups who participated in the "Wipe Out the Violence" fuindraiser will share in the proceeds from the event.
Those organizations in South Central Kansas include: the Cowley County Safe Homes, the Family Life Center, the Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Center, Sunlight Children's Advocacy and Rights Foundation and the Wichita YWCA.
Another fundraiser was put on by the staff at the El Dorado Correctional Facility. Another $1,064 was raised, and that will go to help support two charities in Butler County.
The two organizations receiving the proceeds include the Family Life Center, which provides in-depth and personal service to victims of domestic violence, child abuse, as well as sexual abuse and assault. The other organization is the Sunlight Children's Advocacy and Rights Foundation, also known as SCARF. The goal of SCARF is to help address the needs of abused and neglected children in Butler county.
