Bryant & Stratton College Contributes $1,000 To Domestic Violence Task Force

October 21, 2010
Domestic and Sexual Violence Resource Center

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — In recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Bryant & Stratton College has donated $1,000 to the Chesterfield County Domestic Violence Task Force. The donation will enable the task force to reprint 40,000 emergency information and referral cards for distribution to potential victims of domestic violence throughout the region.

“It is exciting to see an educational institution such as Bryant & Stratton acknowledge the need for awareness about domestic violence,” said Jacqueline Dean, chair of the Chesterfield County Domestic Violence Task Force. “The staff is, indeed, an inspiration for their efforts to educate students about healthy relationships, and for helping to spread the word about the prevention and intervention of domestic violence incidents. The task force is honored to be the recipient of this donation to assist in our work.”

While presenting the gift, Bryant & Stratton’s Virginia Campus Director Beth Murphy said that two of the local college’s students have died in the last three years as a result of domestic violence. She expressed appreciation for the task force’s work and noted that the college has a responsibility to help women in need. The Chesterfield County campus serves 1,800 students each year. Eighty percent are women.

The Chesterfield County Domestic Violence Task Force is a coalition of agencies and concerned citizens dedicated to providing leadership in preventing and responding to domestic violence in the community. The emergency information and referral card is a compact card with phone numbers to local resources for domestic violence victims.
