Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention

We have another new Challenge!   (This is not the one mentioned previously that we will be doing in early June, along with Springfield Stitches for a Cause.)

Keene, New Hampshire     (***CHALLENGE COMPLETED***)

“Breaking the Cycle:  We believe prevention and intervention must be at work simultaneously until we reach our vision.

Empowerment and Self-Determination:  We believe in the right to have control over one's body, mind and spirit.

Health:  We believe that individual, organization, and community health are interrelated and that trauma exposure can impact health and well-being.” 

These are just some of the Core Values of the Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention.  They are situated in the southern New Hampshire town of Keene. 
They would like our 'famed' slippers and washcloths.  So here we go!

Our Challenges are also posted on our Facebook page and that is where we receive most of our pledges. If you would like to make a pledge here on the Blog, please put your pledge in a comment box - number of slippers and/or washcloths and categories (women's, teen boys, teen girls, etc.) and we will receive it. The number of slippers/washcloths still needed will be updated here as often as possible during the Challenge.

Our Facebook page is visible to the public without being a member of Facebook; however, you cannot post pledges there unless you have a Facebook account.
