On July 23, EWP celebrated survivors with a virtual event with the theme ‘Strengthen’. We highlighted not only the impact of EWP in the community, but also put the focus on the survivors that EWP has served for the last 45 years. Our services are critical to healing the trauma of domestic and sexual violence and strengthening individual survivors, their families, and this community as a whole.
The event featured a panel discussion among community leaders, an online auction, and a celebration video with survivor success stories, and an extended interview with Ms. Beverly Geyer, EWP’s first Executive Director. Ms. Geyer shares stories of the very beginnings of the agency, as well as the challenges and changes she’s seen over 45 years.
You can pick up your auction winnings by appointment at EWP at 1221 W. Laketon Ave beginning the week of August 3. This delay is to allow us to properly sanitize the items before passing them off to you. You may contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (231) 759-7909 to set up your appointment starting August 3.
We will package your auction winnings with special attention to limiting your exposure to Coronavirus: sanitizing individual items, wearing masks and gloves, and then storing the items for 3 days following handling.
