A local non-profit receives a big check for their work helping victims of violence and abuse.
Holly’s House was presented a $70,000 check from the Allstate Foundation Wednesday. Holly’s House is a victim advocacy center in Evansville that reaches nine counties in our area.
Since 2006, the Allstate Foundation has donated more than $500,000 to Holly’s house..
“The work they do here at Holly’s House, this facility, the interviewing rooms, the safe haven that they provide for their victims just aligns perfectly with the quest of our foundation,” said Indiana Allstate Sales Leader, Bill Payne.
“We don’t charge for our services and we do have costs like any business,” said Holly’s House Executive Director Sidney Hardgrave, “So when the corporate community invests in the work of the charitable services, that’s a win-win.”
Hardgrave says the money will go towards making sure they have qualified personnel to help victims at Holly’s House, as well as the Albion Fellows Bacon Center and the Lampion Center.
