Every year during the holiday season, Knowledgent Cares hosts our annual holiday food drive benefitting those in need in our local communities. This year, we raised $1,600 for holiday meals for those at Safe & Sound Somerset, a domestic violence shelter and support organization in Somerset County, New Jersey!
This is our 5th year hosting the food drive, and with the donations raised, Safe & Sound Somerset will be able to provide holiday meals to women and children receiving help from the organization.
Safe & Sound Somerset offers a number of services for victims of domestic violence and their children, including short-term residence, transitional housing, counseling, and a domestic violence response team. Safe & Sound’s mission is to empower survivors of domestic abuse and engage the community to break the cycle of violence.
“Our thanks to each of you!” said Safe & Sound Somerset’s Director of Development, Kristin Cantwell. “Each donation is a statement of belief in these survivors and an expression of your commitment to ending Domestic Abuse in Somerset County, once and for all.”
In the season of gratitude, we are thankful to be help provide meals to those in need, and we are already looking forward to next year’s food drive!
