Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge

For the month of October, First Step annually participates in the Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge, which raises awareness on the impact and severity domestic and dating violence has on communities.  Through the challenge we also raise money to help us support our local shelter and domestic violence services.  Please click the link listed below to visit our fundraising page.  Any contribution is greatly appreciated.
