Advocating for domestic violence prevention is a Signature Project of the General Federation of Women’s Club nationwide. Throughout the year as part of our local commitment, members of the Georgia Federation Brunswick Woman’s Club have been collecting items for enclosure in the 16 comfort bags presented to Amity House in late November for victims of domestic violence. These bags were filled not only with most of the toiletry necessities but various make-up items were also placed in zipper cases with lotions, etc. The mission of the Glynn Community Crisis Center is to provide emergency shelter and services to battered/abused individuals and their children and to put an end to domestic violence in our community. Amity House is just one part of the center — others include community outreach, housing assistance and outreach client services.
