FAYETTEVILLE–David Adams’ Jewelers, located at 100 W. Center St. downtown on the square, will hold a raffle for a South Sea Pearl Pendant with matching earrings on Wed., Dec. 3 during their open house. Tickets are $10 and the proceeds will go to help women and children who have survived domestic violence. They also plan to give away a few Mother rings gift certificates for those who sign up on their e-mail list.
Mr. Adams was happy to support Peace at Home’s mission to end domestic violence.
“I grew up with my Mother having to put up with abuse when I was 5 to 8 years of age. We moved many times, all she had at the time were friends to rely on so I can understand the need for help when a family is broken and no where to turn. I have recently met many people lately who have been helping with different shelter programs. I believe it’s my turn to start,” said Mr. Adams.
Established in 1977, Peace at Home is Arkansas’ oldest shelter for domestic violence survivors. Their mission is to END domestic violence. They offer emergency shelter, a crisis line, advocacy, job training, and bi-lingual services. In 2007, the organization had
an astonishing 78% success rate for families moving onto safe and successful lives. Last year, they had 3,936 safe nights for women and children.
