This past fiscal year, 811 cases of child abuse in Cumberland County were referred to the CAC. That is 811 children, suffering from abuse and neglect, right here in our community. It is our hope, and the hope of the children served by the Child Advocacy Center that prevention and intervention of child abuse remains one of your top charitable-giving priorities. Your donation will enable us to continue our fight to protect and serve the most helpless among us – our children!
There are SEVERAL ways that you can help us continue to provide help, hope and healing to so many other children that are victims of sexual and physical abuse in our community.
1. Purchase a leaf ($250) or star ($100) for our CAC Tribute Murals. Use this as a moment to pay tribute and honor someone special to you in your life! Murals are displayed in the main lobby of the CAC and in the conference meeting room. This tribute will help to support the important work being done at the CAC for child abuse survivors in our county.
2. Select one or more of the items from our “wish list” and donate them to the Center. Washable dry erase markers, Bottled water, Juice boxes , Individually wrapped snack items for children, Comfort blankets, Gift cards to a grocery store or office supply store, Canned soda, Coffee, Keurig coffee cups and Paper products.
