Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies Inc. (AWARE) offers our gratitude to Scott V. Spickler and Linda Egan, of Spickler/Egan Financial Services, for their generous and innovative holiday donation to AWARE.
This year Spickler/Egan decided to forgo a holiday greeting card to their clients, business associates and friends and instead chose to contribute funds for a wondrous holiday breakfast for the women and children in residence for safe shelter at AWARE. We are delighted to be able to celebrate with breakfast feasts for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Each year thousands of women, men and children in Juneau and northern Southeast communities receive essential AWARE services: crisis intervention, advocacy and support, safety planning, counseling, referral and information, training and education, and prevention and personal safety information. In our efforts to create a safe and empowering environment for women and children who are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse, you have added a bright light of warmth and caring.
The staff, volunteers and women and children served by AWARE are inspired by the spirit of generosity and community Spickler/Egan Financial Services has generated during this holiday time. Thank you. Your thoughtful and generous gift reaffirms that all of us can have a season with blessings and joy.
Executive director, AWARE
