Fcs 2017 Roundabout Raleigh Pillow Drive 01 19 17

 

Take a moment to imagine how difficult it would be to spend your first night in a shelter for victims of domestic violence. Now imagine how a few simple “creature comforts” might make that traumatic experience slightly more bearable.

That’s why every woman who enters the InterAct shelter on Oberlin Road in Raleigh gets a fresh, new pillow, still in its packaging. It’s a small gesture, but it helps promote dignity and provide comfort during a stressful time. And you can help.

FatCat Strategies has joined forces with a few of our neighbors here on Hillsborough Street to hold a Pillow Drive to benefit InterAct.
