Ring Out to End Domestic Violence

For the Month of October 2013 NEWS purple piggy bank collection boxes will be in the bank lobby, along with Domestic Violence information and prevention cards. The banks will be collecting donations from customers and staff and vying for the coveted "Purple Piggy With a Purpose" Award! We don't even know what that is yet, but it is sure to be great!
You can also stop by the NEWS Administration Office and pick up your own Purple Piggy Bank and collect donations for NEWS! Fill your bank with "Change" and make "Change" for women and children in Napa County who need our help. Drop off the "Change" you collected, and you can keep the bank!
If your bank would like to participate, please contact Karen at (707) 252-3687 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
