Phone Drive for New Horizons!


Lily Wittrock ’16 has an opportunity for you to make a difference:

Ring ring! Got old phones? Students for Consent and Communication wants them!

SFCC is running a phone drive to benefit the New Horizons Domestic Violence Shelter. Before and after Thanksgiving break, we will be collecting old (and new!) phones and chargers to donate to the shelter. The phones only need to be able to turn on and need to come with a charger. They will be distributed throughout the community so that people can call 911 in case of an emergency. (These calls are free and will not be charged to the previous owner.)

So go home and get your middle school-era flip phone (and charger) still sitting in that random desk drawer, ask your relatives to bring their old phones to Thanksgiving dinner along with the pie/bubbly, or go wild on Black Friday and buy a new phone and bring your old one back! You can drop your phones off in the box in the Olin lobby or during lunch or dinner in Usdan from Friday 11/22 until Wednesday 12/3!

Dates: November 22nd- December 3rd
Place: Usdan and Olin

Come to a discussion with Martin Wheeler, of Connecticut Legal Services, to learn about his experience as a family attorney for survivors of domestic violence who are either undocumented or rely on their partner for lawful immigration status. Mr. Wheeler is also a licensed family therapist and will discuss his experiences working with victims of trauma.

Sponsored by Students for Consent and Communication, Ajua Campos, International House, and the Planned Parenthood Campus Action Interns.

Walk In Our Footsteps Exhibit

On October 22, New Horizons Domestic Violence Services – a program of Community Health Center, Inc. – will help end the silence with “Walk In Our Footsteps,” a free outdoor exhibition to raise awareness through the voices of women and children victims. The exhibit, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Middletown’s South Green, will include 54 pairs of children’s shoes, each representing a child who resided or participated in New Horizon’s services between October 2009 to October 2010; the Clothesline Project, displaying more than 40 tee shirts with the artwork and words of adult and child victims; and cardboard silhouettes of children, each featuring a story about a child affected by domestic violence. Representatives from New Horizons will be available to answer questions and provide information on community services and resources.

For more information, contact Melanie Smith of New Horizons Domestic Violence Services at (860) 344-9599 or smithm(at)chc1(dot)com.
