WomenSafe receives donation from Maple Run

MIDDLEBURY — WomenSafe was recently named as one of three organizations chosen to receive funding from the proceeds of the Middlebury Maple Run, Vermont’s Sweetest Half-Marathon.
WomenSafe received $1,000 to support their Emergency Services Fund, created to assist people who are fleeing abuse and violence. People in such situations often leave very quickly with just a few small things. WomenSafe used the funds to purchase gift cards or gift certificates to local businesses to assist survivors during this critical time. These funds will support between 15-25 families.
WomenSafe Executive Director, Kerri Duquette-Hoffman, said “WomenSafe is honored to receive this grant. It is such a powerful message to our community, saying that every member of the community deserves dignity and to be safe. We thank the Middlebury Maple Run community for joining us in this work.”
