The women of Mathis, Marifian & Richter Ltd. played host to a women’s networking event to make tie blankets for local women’s shelters.
The effort assisted the Oasis Women’s Shelter and the Violence Prevention Center of Southwestern Illinois. Representatives from both shelters came and spoke at the event about the efforts to prevent domestic violence and shelter victims of abuse. During the event, attorneys and guests made multiple blankets for each shelter.
The firm and attendees also gathered donations for the year-round needs of the shelters.
The Oasis Women’s Shelter is located in Alton and serves the surrounding area and Madison County. The Violence Prevention Center has multiple locations and serves St. Clair, Monroe and Randolph County.
Women can also call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1 (800) 799-SAFE (7233).
