10/4/2017 1:20:00 PM Family Safety Network announces Parade of Trees!
The Family Safety Network (FSN) of Cass County announces the "Parade of Trees" event set for Saturday, December 2, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Union Congregational United Church of Christ in Hackensack. The event will feature a silent auction of donated decorated trees/wreaths/holiday centerpieces, music, and bake sale.
Participants are needed. Individuals, groups and organizations are invited to participate by designing and creating a Christmas Tree, Wreath or Centerpiece, purchasing all supplies to create it, and then donate it to the event for silent auction. Participants can be as creative as you like from creating a traditional holiday tree/wreath/center-piece to one that may be more modern and unexpected. There are many ways to volunteer besides creating a Tree, Wreath or Centerpiece.
All are invited to attend the event and bid on items. FSN encourages businesses in the area to plan on bidding on items at the "Parade of Trees" event for their holiday decorations. Persons may also bid on any item that would be donated to a family that has received services from FSN at some time in the past year and who would greatly benefit from such a gift during what can be a challenging time of year.
FSN's mission is to provide services and build relationships to keep all families safe. It has existed since 1993 and works with persons experiencing domestic violence to meet self-defined needs by providing information and support. They are committed to providing advocacy to victims of violence by offering: confidential personal and legal advocacy, confidential support, help in filing court documents such as Orders for Protections and Harassment Restraining Orders, accompaniment to court hearings and other appointments, safety planning, women's weekly support group, 24 Hour Crisis Line 800-324-8151, emergency transportation, public presentations for community education, and information and referral services.
Proceeds from all fundraisers go to support FSN, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. For participant or volunteer forms for Parade of Trees, or for more information about FSN, you can visit the web site at www.familysafetynetwork.net, email email@example.com, or call 218-547-1636.
