With Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, Amberly’s Place invites community members to “adopt” local families who have experienced abuse. Their donations will help the family advocacy center provide holiday meal baskets to those families who would otherwise not have a Thanksgiving Day.
Diane Umphress, executive director of Amberly’s Place, pointed out that often victims not only leave behind the abuse, but they also lose their source of financial support. As a result, this holiday season, “many families will be left without any type of financial support at all due to abuse,” she said. “As a community, we continue to need your help and support to keep up with the needs of those we serve.”
