Domestic Violence Awareness Clothing Drive

Domestic Violence Awareness Clothing Drive

Benefitting the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and the NJLC Women of the ELCA are raising awareness by holding a clothing drive to benefit our local women’s shelter. From October 7 through October 31 we will be collecting gently used and new clothing items, and monetary donations, that will be donated to the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter.

Drop off locations include New Jerusalem Lutheran Church (12942 Lutheran Church Road, Lovettsville, VA 20180). Checks can be made out to NJLC with "clothing drive” written in the memo line.
