BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, but a local real estate agent says being “aware” of the problem is not enough.
Nona Darling is organizing a campaign to support the Alliance Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault. Organizers are asking for new, unworn underwear and other clothing for victims of domestic violence.
They also collect personal hygiene products for women, including shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, toothbrushes and laundry detergent.
