MMC is pleased to support the New Day Advocacy Renovation Campaign efforts with a check for $10,000. New Day is currently raising funds to renovate a new space they were able to purchase to provide additional services for our community. New Day Advocacy (formerly New Day Shelter) is a safe haven for victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault, which provides emergency housing and food for victims and their children. About one-quarter of their clients need shelter. In addition, New Day provides support services to affect social change and ultimately to help reduce the cycle of family violence and assault in our communities.
Of the donation, MMC CEO Jason Douglas says, “New Day provides crucial services to our friends and neighbors during a difficult time. On behalf of our Board of Directors, we hope this contribution can assist in providing additional space to continue serving and improving the lives of families in Ashland and Bayfield counties.”
The organization hopes to raise approximately $1,000,000 over the next two to three years. If you are interested in learning more or making a contribution please contact New Day at 715-682-9566 or by mail at PO Box 88, Ashland, WI, 54806, visit their web site at www.ndshelter.org, or on Facebook.
