If you didnt know, we are in the middle of the week (National Crime Victims Right’s Week) established to advocate for all crime victims. The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), inside the Office of Justice Programs, has recognized the week since 1981, according to their website. The purpose of the event is to “[promote] victims’ rights and [honor] crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.”
The OVC has many resources on their webpage, http://ovc.ncjrs.gov/ncvrw/, for you to look through. It’s actually an interesting read through. Their are biographies of people, videos and photos. If you have the time this week, it is really worth a look.
CRAM THE CHILI’s: On May 2nd we have our first restaurant fundraiser at the Chili’s on Eubank and Central. Come see us! If you give the waitress one of our fliers (See the Facebook page) we will get 10 percent of your bill. All of the proceeds will go towards funding our July event.
TRIBUTES: I Will be working on the Remembering Our Loved Ones Section soon (maybe today after class), if you want us to have a seperate page for your loved one please comment and tell us their story.
PHOTOS: Go to the facebook page to get your free gift flier from Picture Me Photo Studios. With every donation to RHV, they are offering a free collage.
Other than those updates, I dont think i have anything to talk about right now. Like usual, you can expect a posting blitz from me at 3:30 on the facebook site. Untill then, stay strong RHV Family.
