Wednesday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin Steven Garcia from the Women's Protective Service joined Dave and Matt to talk about the upcoming fundraiser the organization will be hosting.

Steven Garcia explained the goals of the organization,

"What we do is, we're a domestic violence shelter. We're geared for keeping the victims, women, children, and a few men, safe from violence and sheltering them, providing clothing, food, the basic human necessities, and then really going from there and getting them healed and educated, and hopefully self sufficiency is the ultimate goal."

The Women's Protective Service will  be holding a fundraiser this Saturday, August 11th at 5:30 P.M. at the Double B Party Barns. The event will offer a reverse raffle with some high quality John Deer products, BBQ, country music artist Jenni Dale Lord, and a silent auction featuring many items including additional passes. Tickets will be $100 and are good for 2 adults.

Garcia went on to explain that direct donations are also very much appreciated. The organization can be contacted by calling 747-6491 where they accept monetary, clothing, toiletries, blankets, pillows, and toy donations.
