Today, Tuesday December 1st, is #GivingTuesday2020.
It goes without saying that 2020 has been a pretty unusual year, and that is probably putting it lightly. With this in mind, it is important to remember that violent crime has not stopped during this time, and victims and survivors have had entirely new challenges to face. Arkansas Valley Resource Center (AVRC) has continued providing services to victims and survivors, as we are deemed an essential service, as well as first responders. So far in the year 2020, our agency has experienced an 18% increase in requests for services.
This is where community support and donations become so crucial for AVRC, as we are a grant-funded, non-profit agency, with no guaranteed funding. Community donations play a big role in our funding, as both monetary and item donations allow us to seek further grant funds.
AVRC is able to accept donations in many ways. First, there is our
or you can send a check via mail to
P.O. Box 716
La Junta, CO 81050.
If you are considering donating items, AVRC Staff are in office Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to accept these donations.
Every donation AVRC receives makes a difference. We ask that you would consider AVRC as you look to donate, now and in the near future.
If you would like to make a donation to AVRC to assist victims and survivors of violent crime, or have any questions, AVRC Staff is available 24/7.
