The Social Justice Committee at Northwood Elementary School in Hilton recently held a clothing drive to bring awareness to Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. The drive was a resounding success with over 75 bags of clothing being donated to the Willow Domestic Violence Center in Rochester.

Willow Domestic Violence Center has provided services for the Greater Rochester community for nearly 40 years. Each year, Willow Center reaches more than 7,000 people in Monroe County. In 2015, Willow Center changed its name from Alternatives for Battered Women (ABW) to better reflect the breadth of services provided and clients served.

Willow Center is the only New York State certified domestic violence service provider serving Monroe County. The Center provides a full-continuum of free and confidential services, without judgement.

The Northwood Social Justice Committee is led by Teachers Candice Hudson, Kristin Coon and Rachel Pignagrande.
