The Salvation Army has joined Jewish Women International (JWI) in its work to end domestic abuse by becoming a partner in the Mother’s Day Flower Project. This annual event sends Mother’s Day bouquets to 150 domestic violence shelters around the country, including The Salvation Army’s Women’s  and Children’s Shelter in Indianapolis.

Contributing to the Mother’s Day Flower Project is a wonderful mitzvah that links social justice and education with your holiday celebration. For each $25 donation, JWI sends a beautiful Mother’s Day card to any honoree you choose, thanking her for inspiring you to give. In addition, for every $25 contribution you make to the Flower Project, The Salvation Army will receive $5 back from JWI.

The Salvation Army is one of nearly 100 national and local organizations who have joined the Flower Project coalition this year. The project is an opportunity to raise awareness about domestic abuse while we deliver compassion and support to women forced to live in domestic violence shelters.

This critical issue affects so many women – and so, directly or indirectly, it affects us all.

Contributions to the Mother’s Day Flower Project can be made by phone (202-857-1300) or online at www.jwi.org/fp — where you can also view the card JWI will send.
