The Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, headed by Sheriff Lynn Anderson, is a wholehearted supporter of the mission of Safe Haven and strives for ways to serve the women and children assisted by the organization. In October 2013, deputies working the Kiwanus Ogeechee Fair were approached by Faye Bush and Mike Inman, site managers with Amusements of America which provide the rides and attractions for the Fair. Bush and Inman indicated that they wished to provide donated items to the families supported by Safe Haven. Spearheaded by these two Good Samaritans, employees with Amusements of America provided boxes of diapers, clothing, toys, and cash donations which were turned over to Safe Haven staff. Sheriff Anderson would like to thank Faye, Mike, and all the employees of Amusements of America who gave of their time, effort, and money in collecting the donations.
Safe Haven would also like to thank Amusements of America for collecting these donations as well as the Bulloch County Sheriff’s office for helping organize the donation drop off. Without the support of the community, we would not be able to do what we do here at Safe Haven!
To say the 2013 Dancing with the Statesboro Stars Event was a success is an understatement! Through the selfless time of dedicated individuals and the giving hearts of the community, Safe Haven was able to raise over $80,000 dollars to help better the lives of victims of domestic violence.
Thank you to all of the participants for dedicating your time and energy into fundraising and putting on an incredibly entertaining show! We would also like to thank the members from the community who attended the event, as well as for your humble generosity to help aid in the successful futures of the clients of Safe Haven. We truly could not do what we do without you!
If you were unable to attend the event or would like to relive the magic, you can purchase a DVD for $10.00! Contact Safe Haven for details. 912-764-4605
