Vinton County CERT and Crime watch is pleased to announce the partnership with The Shepherd’s House in efforts to bring awareness to Domestic Violence. The month of October, we will be hosting a candle vigil in mcArthur to honor the victims and families of Domestic Violence, Celebrate the survivors and to Connect those who work to end the violence. Although we are still in the planning stages of the event, we are very excited to support this initiative. We will be planning events to help raise money for the Shephards House to provide direct services that may otherwise go unfunded. Visit this site regularly to keep informed of the developments of “Honor, Celebrate and Connect” and how you can contribute to the cause.
