Laurel House Face Masks

Laurel House Face Masks

JL Racing teamed up with Laurel House to donate face masks for women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Right now, due to the pandemic, many of the families in their Counseling program who do not normally need assistance with food, supplies, etc., are struggling and Laurel House is providing as much of these kinds of practical support items as possible. The face masks will be used for the families they serve when they do “no contact” drop off or pick up of the supplies (which they do several times/week). Laurel House is especially appreciative of the masks for the children as those are hard to find and the Moms they serve often need to take the children out with them when they run errands, due to the absence of normal child care options right now.

"The wonderful masks arrived today – thank you SO much to both of you and to everyone at JL Racing.  They are good looking and well made. I love the filter, and the option to use the ear loops or ties. We love that they are the purple color that is often used for domestic violence awareness materials too. We appreciate your support so much!" -Beth E. Sturman, Executive Director

Laurel House is a comprehensive domestic violence agency serving individuals, families, and communities throughout Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The agency’s name was selected because of the beauty of the laurel, Pennsylvania’s state flower. It represents a victory for people who have taken the courageous first step of reaching out to Laurel House in their efforts to build a violence-free life for themselves and their children.

Laurel House’s shelter has long been known as a safe place to heal. However, for numerous decades, their programs have expanded to include many other needed services and support resources. Today, in addition to their 24-hour hotline and shelter, Laurel House offers transitional housing, medical advocacy, legal advocacy, counseling and support groups, children’s programs, law enforcement collaboration, and expanded community education and prevention efforts.

We encourage you to consider making a monetary gift to Laurel House during this time. Your gift to Laurel House enables them to provide much-needed services to victims of domestic violence and their loved ones. As a comprehensive domestic violence agency, they offer an array of services to those impacted by domestic violence, as well as to community members, to provide education about this social issue. We encourage you to learn more about Laurel House and the impact your donation will make by learning about their programs.

Mother’s day invites reflection on the journey of becoming a mother. We live in a world where there are nearly as many Fortune 500 CEOs named John in America as there are female CEOs.
