The following release is from the Westport Domestic Violence Task Force:

WESTPORT, CT — From Monday, July 17, 2023, through Sunday, July 23rd, the Westport Domestic
Violence Task Force (WDVTF) will be collecting back-to-school supplies for residents of the
two Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC) safe houses that service our area.


The Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC) supports individuals on their journey to safety.
DVCC advocates for individuals who are experiencing abuse in personal relationships. It offers
multiple services and professional staff to help those experiencing any level of domestic violence
and assist them in building a safer environment for the well-being of themselves and their
families. All victim services are free and confidential, and all services offered are
multicultural/multilingual. These services include assistance with basic needs such as food,
clothing, and personal items. Counseling and legal services are also introduced in addition to
transportation assistance, children’s advocacy, weekly play-based children’s programming
focused on self-esteem and healthy communication and referrals to community resources. The
DVCC also provides economic advocacy, including budget development and assistance with job
searches and resumes.

The DVCC safe house and community clients are in need of the following items to ensure the children are prepared for the new school year:

New Unused Backpacks
New and Unused Lunch Boxes
Graphing Calculators
Gift cards (Staples, Target, Walmart, Amazon, etc.)

Donations can be left in the collection bin located in the lobby of the Westport Police
Department, 50 Jesup Road, Westport between July 17th and 23rd. Donations can also be
brought to the collection bin located at ASF Sports & Outdoors, 1560 Post Road East. The
WDVTF would like to thank ASF for their partnership on this project.
