Church gives quilts to PEACE

-A +A
PEACE for Families, which provides comprehensive services to domestic violence and sexual assault victims in Placer County, recently received 25 home-crafted quilts from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Roseville. Church leader Dan Clift and his wife, Juleen, presented the quilts to PEACE for Families Board President and Rocklin Police Chief Ron Lawrence. Juleen Clift and numerous women from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints spent several months sewing the quilts, which will provide warmth and comfort to families and children at the safe house. “I cannot thank the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints enough for their care and compassion for our cause,” said Lawrence. “Donations such as these blankets fill a special need for PEACE for Families, and, because they are homemade, they will not only provide much needed warmth for our survivors, but will bring a special love to our safe house.” Chief Lawrence invites the community to join PEACE for Families in its efforts to stop domestic violence and sexual assaults in Placer County by making a donation on the nonprofit’s website at www.peaceforfamilies.org. The women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invite women of all faiths to join them in creating homemade items for multiple nonprofit agencies. For more information about the craft projects, call B.J. Smith at (916) 531-7567. PEACE for Families is dedicated to ending the legacy of abuse by providing survivors of domestic and sexual violence with services and resources and fostering communities where abuse is not tolerated. PEACE provides a 24-hour crisis line (800-575-5352), emergency domestic violence shelter, and service offices in Roseville and Auburn where victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and their families/significant others may receive therapy, legal advocacy, assistance and resources at no charge. ~ Staff report
