On August 15 and 16, Turning Point held our 9th annual Take a Stand for Turning Point radiothon fundraiser. Turning Point raised $70,000 toward our $100,000 goal, demonstrating incredible support from you, the McHenry County community.
The Allstate Foundation has given us a second chance to reach our goal. Throughout September, Turning Point is participating in Allstate’s Purple Purse Challenge. You can make contributions to the agency while helping us earn extra cash through periodic bonus challenges. With your help, Turning Point is hoping to raise the extra $30,000 to reach our goal by the beginning of October – Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Here are some ways your money impacts the lives of domestic violence victims in McHenry County:
- A safe night of shelter
- Assistance filing an order of protection
- Repaired relationships between parents and children
- Financial education to empower survivors
