Bug & Weed Mart will match donations to My Sisters’ Place
To raise awareness and support for victims of domestic violence, Bug & Weed Mart’s six Valley stores will host a fundraising drive during October in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The locally owned and operated retailer, specializing in DIY pest control, will raise funds for Catholic Charities My Sisters’ Place, an emergency shelter serving victims of domestic violence.
Donations can be made at any Bug & Weed Mart location – no purchase necessary. Receipts will be provided for tax records and Bug & Weed Mart will be matching in-store donation dollars, up to $5,000.
My Sisters’ Place will be using the money raised for food, diapers, bus tickets, medical supplies, and child care for the individuals and families living in the shelter.
