I am raising money for a local charity in need of help! THe Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center is a local philanthropy that helps to rehabilitate families who have suffered!
This year I am participating in Chi Omega Songfest. Songfest is a singing and dancing competition that has been held at The University of Toledo for over 80 years! Each year members of Mortar Board National Senior Honor Society and Blue Key National Honor Society work together to put on a successful event while raising money for a philanthropy. This year we have selected The Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center as our philanthropy. FCAPC host programs for children and families in the Toledo area and gives them the resources needed to live a happier and healthier life. FCAPC does wonderful work throughout the community and with your assistance they could continue to better the lives of many children and families seeking help. Please join me in my efforts as we fundraise for this incredibly worthy organization!
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
