We are excited to announce that a class of Clemson public relations students has partnered with Safe Harbor to help domestic violence victims in the Upstate. The class has entered us into the national Pepsi Refresh grant competition. We now need everyone’s help to vote online for our project to win $25,000. The top 10 projects (out of 1,000) with the most online votes in November will win the grant money.
The $25,000 grant will help purchase 30 new twin bed mattresses, install new carpet, and renovate the playground equipment at one of our shelters. These shelters house over 500 women and children each year who need temporary housing as they escape violent situations at home. After 15 years of housing families in crisis, our shelters need these renovations to better serve future families.
Here’s how you can help Safe Harbor win $25,000:
• Go to RefreshEverything.com/StudentsForSafeHarbor to vote now!
• Click the “Vote for this idea” and create an account with your email. It takes less than a minute to sign up, and you will not receive spam.
• Once you have voted, you do not have to register again, so vote every day through Nov. 30!
• Help us spread the word – get everyone you know to vote!
We are thrilled to have the support of this class, but we need everyone to vote daily to win this grant. Please pass the link to our project on to your friends and family to encourage as many votes as possible. Together, we can win the money to refurbish our shelter!
