Next Door receives $10,000 from Mercury News Holiday Wish Book campaign
We thank the San Jose Mercury News for the $10,000 raised through their Holiday Wish Book campaign. Victims come to Next Door in the most precarious of situations – fleeing abuse in the home, often with young children and with no money or resources to fall back on. Domestic violence victims experience physical injury as well as poverty and neglect. In addition to providing shelter, education and counseling, Next Door strives to give victims access to transportation, immigration, translation and legal services, clothing and toiletries – in short, the beginnings of a foundation upon which they can build safe, productive lives for themselves and their families. But we could not do this without the help of our community and the San Jose Mercury News Wishbook Fund has been a long time supporter and for that we are eternally grateful.
