14th Annual Hot Chocolate Run

A 5K Run and 3K Walk to Promote Freedom From Violence in Hampshire County
Sunday December 3, 2017

Yankee is proud to be a 2017 sponsor of the Safe Passage Hot Chocolate Run. Safe Passage is dedicated to creating a world free of domestic violence and relationship abuse. Since 1977, Safe Passage has supported survivors of domestic violence through a range of programs and services, including a shelter, counseling and legal services, and a crisis hotline. Services are available to anyone who has experienced domestic violence, regardless of age, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We at Yankee Home Improvement are proud to be helping Safe Passage as our featured nonprofit! Our donations and yours help give survivors what they need to stay safe, to heal from violence, and to gain hope for a brighter future. Safe Passage’s counselors ask, “How can we help?” instead of saying, “Here’s what we can offer you.” It’s an important difference. Survivors come to Safe Passage with a range of experiences, resources, and challenges, and what works for one person may not be helpful for another. This individualized, flexible response is made possible by generous community support. To learn more about Safe Passage, visit www.hotchocolaterun.com.
