Shawnee's Commitment To Shelter
Thursday, July 11, 2008 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) — The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is the first property in the Poconos to make a commitment to support Women's Resources' "Shelter for Shelter" initiative of their "Campaign for Safehaven".
Women's Resources, a community-based, non-profit, crisis-counseling center that serves adult and child victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, set an overall goal on behalf of the Campaign for Safehaven to raise one million dollars in order to refurbish its administration building and shelter. At present, the association has raised $700,000 and is currently campaigning to realize its goal.
If the total funds are raised, the renovations will affectively double the organization's capacity to service individuals in distress. In 2007, they provided shelter for 169 adults and children totaling 2977 nights and counseling services for a total of 3559 hours. Due to the lack of shelter and counseling space currently available, last year Women's Resources was forced to turn away 101 adult and child victims of violence.
Shelter for Shelter is the branch of Campaign for Safehaven aimed at recruiting Monroe County's businesses to aide in achieving Women's Resources' goal. On August 2nd, companies, that have made a commitment to support Shelter for Shelter, will donate one percent of their gross profit for that day. In addition, between the dates of July 15th and August 15th Women's Resources will be selling "dove" cards for a one to five dollar donation, allowing guests of the community to be apart of this very important campaign.
The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is happy to continue to uphold its commitment to community service and is proud to support Women's Resources in this righteous campaign. The "dove" cards will be available for purchase at Shawnee between the dates of July 15th and August 15th. In addition, Women's Resources is still looking for sponsors to help reach their goal.
