Press Release: Domestic Violence Shelters’ Desperate Call for Help is Answered by The Mary Kay Foundation with $3 Million Donation from Market Watch, 9/26/11

Monday, September 26, 2011


The article reports, “The Mary Kay Foundation maintains commitment to keeping women safe. The downturn in the economy is driving domestic violence shelters to cut much needed services to domestic violence survivors. More than 670 executive directors of domestic violence shelters reported in the third “Mary Kay Truth About Abuse” national survey of the challenges they are experiencing. In response to this call for help and in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, The Mary Kay Foundation(SM) has awarded $3 million in grants to 150 domestic violence shelters in all 50 states. Each shelter will receive $20,000 that will be used to maintain emergency shelter and rehabilitation programs for women and children.”
