Fundraiser to help women of domestic violence. Proceeds will benefit: Gateway Battered Women's Services-

Shirley’s Tree of Hope Foundation, was created by several caring and loving Comcast CO-workers who have formed this organization to reach out to the community around Christmas time. This year we are supporting a Women’s Shelter in honor of Shirley a victim of domestic violence, 25 years ago she decided it was time to break free, unfortunately she didn't make it to the shelter on time. One in four women are abused in the United States and three out of four people know someone who is in an abusive relationship. Contrary to popular belief abused women usually make several attempts to leave their abusers. The successful survivors sneak away at their first available moment, leaving all of their personal belongings, hygienic supplies and family photos behind. Starting over with only the memories of the lives they have left behind. We know that starting a new life can be daunting and we make every effort to support women and children transitioning from abuse to freedom.
