As some of you may know, during my time at the University of Toledo I have lived and breathed Songfest every year. This time around instead of taking on the singing and dancing with my beloved Catholic Student Association (CSA) I am braving a new role as a member of the philanthropy team! This semester I will be raising funds for an org in Toledo called the Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center. They do an amazing job providing resources to children and families in order to live happier and healthier lives! Please support this amazing cause and join the UToledo Rockets in #fuelingfamilies this Spring!!
Why did Songfest choose the Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center?
TO MAKE A CHANGE.
60% of children who grow up in violent homes become batterers or victims as adults
1 in 4 girls will experience sexual abuse in their lives
There are over THREE HUNDRED domestic violence calls to the Toledo Police EVERY MONTH
There are nearly 1900 substantiated cases of Child Abuse in Lucas County EACH YEAR
Every 15 seconds a woman in the US is battered by her husband, boyfriend, or partner
Over 300 Million cases of child abuse get reported every year, and many cases go unreported
4 Children die EVERY DAY in this country due to Child Abuse and Neglect. This makes it the LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH in children under the age of 4
