Candle light vigil to be held for victims of domestic violence
If you or someone you know has been a victim of domestic violence, tonight the Ottumwa Crisis Center will afford you the opportunity to pay tribute by hosting a candle light vigil in the parking lot of the United Way of Jasper County.
The United Way of Jasper County is located at 312 First Ave. W. and the vigil will start at 6 p.m. Pamela Romaine, the OCC advocate for Jasper County, gave some more background on the event.
“October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. During this time we try to have events that will help raise awareness to the problem of domestic violence,” Romaine said. “We anticipate it lasting 30 to 45 minutes. The United Way has graciously offered to host this event in their parking lot, weather permitting. Otherwise, it will move into the United Way’s conference room.”
