Junior League of Greenwich Offers “Merry Meals” Buy a Meal, Give a Meal to Benefit YWCA Domestic Abuse Services

To help provide support to the YWCA Domestic Abuse Services, the Junior League of Greenwich invites Greenwich residents to join our Merry Meals on Sunday, December 13, 2020. Proceeds from this dinner will support the YWCA Domestic Abuse Services and will provide meals to these families in need.

Sadly, domestic abuse has risen during this pandemic. The YWCA offers free, confidential help to individuals and families facing domestic violence by offering a 24/7 hotline (203) 622-0003, crisis intervention, emergency shelter, crisis intervention, a civil legal clinic and other services. If you know of someone experiencing domestic violence, don’t be silent. Be supportive and offer to call the hotline with them. Your support may make a difference.

Your “Merry Meal” includes one “home cooked” meal prepared by Simply Delicious, a local mother-daughter team that specializes in local, fresh, seasonally inspired food and bottle of wine from Cap, Cork & Cellar for your family, and an additional meal to a family who are survivors of domestic violence.

A vital component when recovering from domestic abuse is to empower these survivors with the gift of choice. Gift cards are a wonderful way to provide empowerment, helping to bring back dignity and confidence. You can provide a gift card by going to: https://ywcagreenwich.org/gift-card-fund/.
