The General Federation of Women's Clubs Zwaanendael Women’s Club is collecting items to be donated to the SAFE program at People’s Place to commemorate Domestic Violence Awareness Month during October.

Items needed are new slippers and socks for women and children; ladies’ T-shirt nightgowns; and boys underwear and T-shirts, sizes small and medium. Donations can be placed in the marked box located in the Lewes Library lobby, 111 Adams Ave., through Oct. 31.

The Safe Program at People’s Place provides a safe environment, shelter and support for women and children in domestic violence situations in Kent and Sussex counties. In 2017, they conducted 1,408 hotline calls; assisted 1,827 women and children; and provided 9,853 nights of shelter. This drive will help People’s Place continue to assist those affected by domestic violence.
