Cereal drive benefits Domestic Violence Service Center

The donations were presented to DVSC on Oct. 23.
The Staff Council at Misericordia University recently conducted its annual Cereal Drive by asking members of the campus community to donate boxes of hot and cold cereals. All of the cereal collected was donated to the Domestic Violence Service Center (DVSC), Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

DVSC helps victims of domestic violence in Luzerne and Carbon counties by providing free and confidential services, including emergency shelter, transitional housing, a 24-hour hotline, safety planning, supportive options counseling, and assistance in filing for Protection from Abuse Orders. DVSC staff member Tammy Rogers was on hand for the presentation.
