NORWICH – Throughout October, Catholic Charities of Chenango County will focus its efforts on raising awareness about one of the area’s biggest problems – domestic violence.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In recognition, Catholic Charities is organizing a campaign that includes hosting their annual Celebration of Women from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 at the Howard Johnson Hotel in Norwich.
According to Daniel Auwarter, director of the crime victims program at Catholic Charities, the event is only one necessary precaution needed to educate the community.
“We’ve recognized the event for many years,” said Auwarter, adding that this is the eighth consecutive year the organization has sponsored the Celebration of Women. “We are deeply committed to it.”
