Paint the Town Purple with Branches Domestic Violence Shelter
The 1st Annual Paint the Town Purple event is a one day event, on Saturday, November 16, where area restaurants and bars are invited to donate a portion of their sales to Branches Domestic Violence Shelter. On that evening we want the city of Huntington to be filled with people who share the Branches mission of assisting our clients by providing essential services that allow domestic violence victims the chance for safe, independent, productive lives. The establishment who donates the most that night will receive not only bragging rights and great word-of-mouth PR, but also a traveling trophy to display for one full year—our way of making sure that everyone knows how much your business has done for this important cause.
All of the money that is raised by the Paint the Town Purple event will be used to further help victims in West Virginia with emergency shelter, legal assistance, individual & group counseling, case management and so much more.
Area Businesses Participating:
Jewel City Seafood
Jim's Spaghetti House
Ready, Set, Relax & Invidia Salon Massages

Branches Domestic Violence Shelter was established as a non-profit agency in 1980. Branches works to empower the increasing number of victims and their families to break the cycle of domestic violence in our area. Aside from providing emergency shelter; Branches offers legal assistance, counseling, and case management to ready our clients to become independent. Currently Branches has one operational housing shelter and four outreach offices located in adjoining counties, Mason, Putnam, Wayne, & Lincoln, to provide additional resources.
