The Easton Community Foundation has chosen The Center for Family Safety and Healing (TCFSH) and five other community organizations for its 2019 Change for Charity program. To date, nearly $1.5 million has been donated to local charities through this program.
These six non-profit organizations will receive proceeds from parking meters and parking tickets at Easton Town Center for two designated months.
TCFSH will receive funds during January and February. The charity dollars will go toward a variety of our programs and services for children and adults in our community.
“We are grateful to be chosen as one of six recipients this year, especially since it’s the Easton Community Foundation’s 20th Year of Giving. We see hundreds of families each year who are experiencing some form of family violence. The funds received through this program will benefit clients and their families, and allow us to continue restoring hope in our community. We look forward to a continued partnership with Easton Town Center,” said Sheryl Clinger, Director of Advocacy Policy and Community Engagement.
Change for Charity recipients can take advantage of free signage and LED screen exposure, and have an opportunity to use the Easton Community Booth (an area on the first floor of the mall) during their designated months.
TCFSH was present at the Easton Community Booth three times – once in January and twice in February. Sheryl Clinger was present at the February 13 Easton Tenant Round Table meeting to further discuss TCFSH’s work and mission. Additionally, TCFSH held a free training at Easton on February 23 to educate parents of teens about digital dating and technology tips.
