Grant will assist with violence prevention efforts

The LeeShore Center is very grateful to ConocoPhillips for their generous grant contribution of $2,500, which will help us provide violence prevention education to youth grades K-12 during 2014. ConocoPhillips is a long supporter of LeeShore and our violence prevention efforts targeting youth. With their help, during the last school year LeeShore provided 140 violence prevention education classes to 2943 youth.

Thank you also to the vendors who donated the gifts for the auctions. A total of $1,633 was donated to our agency, which helps in our work to provide safe shelter and services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. The generosity shown is much appreciated!

LeeShore thanks Piecemakers

The LeeShore Center sends our sincerest thanks to the Kenai Piecemakers quilting group for the beautiful handmade quilts they donated to our agency. This year the quilting group donated 60 quilts in addition to 4 pillow cases! Those of us working at the emergency shelter and transitional living facility get to see the impact their kind gift brings to the many children we serve each year. It is a pleasure to see a child's face light up with anticipation and joy as they choose their very own special quilt to keep.
