WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Domestic Violence Task Force is looking for local salons willing to donate gift certificates for a haircut and color. These gift certificates would benefit the two local Domestic Violence Crisis Center shelters in the area.

The women and children residing in these shelters have fled violent households, often with just the clothes on their backs. Many women in these shelters have been out of the work force for a while and want to prepare themselves for job interviews or they are looking to change their appearance to avoid an abuser. These gift certificates would be used anonymously at later dates for that purpose. The gift certificate drive will be held Aug.1 through Sept. 30.

Donating salons will be named and thanked at the task force's October awareness event, the Unitarian Church’s October Voices Café, as well as in a press release at the end of the gift certificate drive.

Donors are asked to also complete the In Kind donation form, which will be used to provide them an official receipt for tax purposes, as the DVCC is a public charity.

Gift certificates and submission forms can be dropped off to WDVTF co-chair Lieutenant Jillian Cabana at Westport Police Headquarters, 50 Jesup Road, or arrangements can be made for salon pick up.

Contact the task force with any questions via email or contact Lieutenant Cabana at (203) 341-6009.
