NYWLE Members team up with Willow Domestic Violence Center

Investigator Lorri Strem, Lieutenant Keri Stein, and Peace Officer Tiffany Street (NYWLE members) from the University of Rochester Department of Public Safety collected new items throughout November to help survivors of domestic violence and their families in the Rochester area. This is the second year that the Department of Public Safety participated in the Willow Domestic Violence Center’s annual Purple Box campaign to collect new holiday gifts for over 300 children in crisis. The Willow Center’s Purple Box campaign launches this time each year in recognition of national Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Public Safety officers represented the University at an Oct. 24 campaign announcement, joining local law enforcement leaders from Rochester area police departments. This year, Public Safety was able to collect over 12 full boxes of new holiday gifts to be donated for the children and teenagers staying at the shelter - a kind gesture of providing new toys can give a child in crisis a sense of normalcy and hope.
