Marietta is committed to continuing our support of nonprofit organizations in the Milwaukee area, especially during this uncertain and difficult time. We thank essential workers for the amazing work they continue to do every day to make our community safe and healthy.
In the first quarter of 2020, the Marietta team has decided to donate funds raised through our Jeans for Charity program to Sojourner Family Peace Center, the largest nonprofit provider of domestic violence prevention and intervention services in Wisconsin. The organization’s primary goals are to “ensure the safety of victims of family violence and provide a pathway out of violence for victims and abusers through opportunities to make positive and lasting changes for themselves and their children.”
The populations that Sojourner serves are even more vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many victims have been trapped with their abusers and face increased social isolation. Sojourner has compiled COVID-19 safety resources for those experiencing domestic abuse, and they also offer crucial services, including a 24-hour Domestic Abuse Hotline, emergency shelter, support groups, legal services, and community education.
Marietta is honored to support Sojourner’s critical work in the Milwaukee community and their commitment to families affected by domestic abuse to achieve safety, justice and well-being.
