October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The community is asked to support Purple Light Nights. Let a light shine on your porch or business during October to remember those who lost their lives, support the survivors and bring hope to those still abused.

Purple lights are available for $3 each or two for $5. Light strings are $30, and tree sponsorship is $100. Contact Rochelle Allen at the Mount Graham Safe House, 348-9548 or rochelleallen@vtc  .net.
