December 2016 Philanthropy
For the month of December, Ode will be donating 5% of profits to Safe Passage.
Safe Passage is dedicated to creating a world free of domestic violence and relationship abuse. The organization has served Hampshire and Hamden counties since 1977, and addresses the impact and promotes the prevention of domestic violence by supporting survivors and their families, engaging the community, and advocating for systemic change.
Safe Passage provides hope and support, both which are essential in the journey from violence to safety. Offering counseling, advocacy, shelter, support groups, and community education to help build safe avenues toward safety and healing, Safe Passage is an incredible place for those who are threatened in ourcommunity to feel safe.
Safe Passage is also the driving force behind The Annual Hot Chocolate Run, held this year on December 4th. The Hot Chocolate Run is a community celebration of Safe Passage, and has grown dramatically since 2004 -- this year 6,000 people participanted in the 5K road race, 5K fun run, and 3K walk. Every runner and walker enjoyed a mug of homemade hot chocolate at the finish line! Participants join every year to most importantly support SafePassage and its important programs for survivors of domestic violence.
Ode is honored to partner with Safe Passage this month. Find more information below.
