End of the Purple Box campaign

Posted at: 11/20/2012 1:01 PM

For the last month, the Rochester Police Department and Alternatives for Battered Women have joined forces as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Tuesday morning, officials announced the end of the Purple Box campaign. It was part of an effort to raise awareness for the cause and to try to make the holiday season a little more enjoyable for these women in need.

ABW Interim Executive Director Janine Lucas said, “With the holidays especially, we want to make sure it’s a close to normal holiday and right now, we are so appreciative of what the Rochester Police Department has done.”

Officials say even though the campaign is over you can still make donations to ABW. They say this time of year they are looking for items like pajamas and slippers. For more information, please call 585-232-5200.
