Supporting Victims: Annual Luncheon by Laurens County Safe Home

October 9, 2023

In a world that can often feel indifferent, where compassion can make a transformative difference, the Laurens County Safe Home takes a stand to support victims of domestic violence through their annual event – the “Bring One Wear One” Luncheon.

This event, scheduled for October 24, 2023, from 11:30am to 1:00pm at the Broad Street United Methodist Church, 310 N. Broad St, Clinton, SC 29325, raises funds and provides essential undergarments to those who have come to the shelter with nothing but the clothes on their back.

For victims, now survivors, escaping the clutches of domestic violence, the decision to leave often comes at a great cost, leaving them with only the garments they are wearing. The Laurens County Safe Home strives to alleviate this burden by providing these individuals with much-needed undergarments. To support this cause, attendees are requested to bring one brand-new undergarment for donation, whether for women, children, or men.

A Taste of Home is generously providing the meal for the event. Also supporting the cause are sponsors – Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial, Laurens County Water & Sewer Commission, Piedmont Rural Telephone Commission, and Commission of Public Works Laurens County. Their support highlights the collective effort locally to support the Laurens County Safe Home.

Tickets for the event are just $30, and attendees are encouraged to reserve their seats by contacting [email protected]. The deadline for reserving seats is October 20, 2023. It’s important to note that a ticket purchase is necessary to attend, and all contributions will go towards supporting victims of domestic violence seeking refuge and assistance through the Laurens County Safe Home.

Join us in supporting our community. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those in need. As Dawn Ardent, Executive Director of the Laurens County Safe Home, passionately puts it, “Your help, no matter how small, brings comfort and support to victims as they bravely rebuild their lives.”
