Orange Day is June 25

Presbyterian Women recognizes Orange Day on Saturday, June 25 a day to show support for all those working to end the exploitation of and violence against women and girls.

YWCA Violence Intervention and Prevention programs provide comprehensive crisis and counseling services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, including a crisis hotline, individual and group counseling and medical and court accompaniments. One in three women have been victims of physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime, while one in five women have reported experiencing rape at some time in their lives.  

On June 25, wear orange or an orange ribbon to show support for these types of programs, and consider giving requested items for the hygiene bags in support for the YWCA program.
