Donations from businesses like Axiom Bank are a very important part of the operation of SafeHouse of Seminole.
Maitland, FL (PRWEB) February 11, 2015
Axiom Bank®, a community bank headquartered in Central Florida, donated $1005 to SafeHouse of Seminole, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending domestic violence.
Axiom Bank’s donation, delivered on Feb. 9, 2015, will be used to replace a refrigerator and stock it with food for children and teens in residence, said Jeanne Gold, Chief Executive Officer. “We provide food and snacks for the children to take to school each day, and we keep those supplies in a separate refrigerator so the children can serve themselves as they get ready each morning.”
SafeHouse of Seminole provides a coordinated response to instances of domestic violence, including providing emergency shelter, counseling services, 24-hour crisis hotline, court advocacy, case management services, child assessments, support groups, referrals, and safety planning. SafeHouse is designed to function as a temporary home for individuals and families who are forced to leave their own homes because they are no longer safe. The shelter is secure and confidential, with living facilities and a playground.
“Donations from businesses like Axiom Bank and individuals are a very important part of the operation of SafeHouse of Seminole,” Gold said. “We rely on support from the community to help us provide the resources that victims of domestic violence need.”
In addition to funds, SafeHouse of Seminole accepts donations of food and other household items. More information about donations can be found at their website at http://www.safehouseofseminole.org or by calling (407) 302-5220 ext. 234.
Axiom Bank supports local charities through its Dress-Down Friday program, which encourages employees to pay $5 to wear jeans on Fridays. “Our charitable contributions are part of our effort to support and improve the communities we serve,” said Ronald Strand-Sorrell, Senior Vice President and Chief Risk Officer, who oversees Axiom Bank’s community outreach programs.
