"Last year we were blown away by the support Someplace Safe received from our communities in just one day. And this year, we are thrilled to announce that an anonymous donor has already pledged a $2,000 matching gift to get us started!"Monetary donations to Someplace Safe will directly benefit local victims and survivors of crime and their families, across the nine counties served by the agency. "Give to the Max Day is about coming together and supporting our local nonprofits in a fun and exciting way," said Jordan.This year, Someplace Safe representatives will again be set up at both Someplace Safe Thrift Store locations in Alexandria and Morris to assist donors in making their online gifts.
