Puyallup asked to take steps to end domestic violence

September 27, 2018 by  

Whatever their age or gender, residents of Puyallup will be welcome to attend an event that will ask them to join the fight against domestic violence.

The police departments of Algona and Pacific have created a joint task force to address the issue of domestic violence, and have organized an evening run and walk to raise awareness about the topic. The route is five miles long, and is open to those who wish to walk, run or roll along using an assistive device.

Once the more active portion of the event has been completed, there will be a tree lighting ceremony during which guest speakers will address the crowd. Dinner, which will include a pasta bar and also dessert, will be on offer for those who come out, and there will also be a table of items up for bids in a silent auction. They can also learn more about the resources that exist in the community to deal with domestic violence.

Along with raising awareness, one of the goals of the occasion is to raise funds that can be used to support programs and services, and also victims who need financial support. It was noted that the first 100 people who register will receive a custom designed drawstring bag. Promotional products like this can be supplied by an area printer.

This opportunity for the public to take a stand against domestic violence will be held on October 6. It will be staged at 100 3rd Avenue SE in Pacific.
