Well this is a big announcement- New York State is putting millions towards helping domestic violence and sexual assault victims.

Five million dollars to be exact.  According to News 10 abc, the Governor’s Office announced that five million dollars of funding is going towards victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.  The funding will be used for things like comfort bags, including basic need items like soap and also resources for support services.  The best part of this all to me is that according to News 10 abc, students are going to be used to help put together the comfort bags.  What a great way to also raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault.  I remember when I was a student, our mandatory community service for public school was nothing nearly as important as this. So, while five million is a lot of money, it’s going towards something important.  And that rocks!
