Women’s Chorus Presents Laurel House with Special Gift for New Shelter
LANSDALE, Pennsylvania – The Liberty Belles Chorus of Lansdale PA donated $1050 in gift cards to Laurel House, in celebration of the anticipated opening of Laurel House’s new Safe Haven Center. The chorus presented the donation as a special house-warming gift – the gift cards were part of an art project that was created by Liberty Belles chorus member Jordie Compton of Shooting Starr Studio.
Laurel House provides shelter and support to women and children who have been impacted by domestic violence. Their new center, which opens later this Fall in Lansdale, will be closer to public transportation, job training opportunities, and other community resources. According to their website, “this new, secure, and easily accessible facility will house our emergency shelter, which is the only one in the county, as well as some of our supportive services for domestic violence victims and their children.”
The Liberty Belles Chorus is a chapter of Harmony Inc., a non-profit international organization whose mission is to “Empower all women through education, friendship, and singing.” As such, they have made it their mission to contribute to local charities like Laurel House. The whole of their donation is comprised of money given by the individual chorus members. The donation, which was presented to Laurel House on Friday September 17th, includes 36 gift cards, which will be distributed to the families of Laurel House.
