(MURFREESBORO) “Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Giving Tuesday mark the official start of the Christmas holidays,” said Child Advocacy Center Director Sharon De Boer. “The non-profit agencies in our community want to encourage you to support us on Tuesday, November 30 for the annual Giving Tuesday campaign.”
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the last nine years, the idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give generously and make a difference in their community.
“The Child Advocacy Center was established in Murfreesboro in 2000” continued De Boer. “The board and staff are proud that our organization has made a difference in the lives of 11% of the population of Rutherford and Cannon Counties. The children and families that have been helped are the true success of the program.”
The Child Advocacy Center works as a multi-disciplinary team with the Department of Children’s Services, law enforcement, medical professionals, mental health counselors, and the District Attorney’s Office to respond to child abuse cases, protect children, arrest perpetrators, aggressively prosecute offenders, help children heal from the trauma, and help families rebuild their shattered lives.
