Four years ago, Planned Parenthood launched a community service project to help victims of domestic violence.
Inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr., the program kicks off each year on January 16th.
Planned Parenthood organizations throughout the state of Michigan participate in the project.
Planned Parenthood Marquette outreach specialist Jenna Luoma says the program was started as a way to give back to the community and honor Dr. King’s passion for non–violence.
The purpose is to provide shelters with anything and everything that a victim of domestic violence may have a need for.
The organization is accepting donations through the end of this month.
You can drop the items off at any Planned Parenthood of western and northern Michigan.
There are also collection boxes at several businesses and schools throughout the area.
