Donations needed for Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse

By Rikki Mitchell. CREATED Oct 18, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - KGUN9 has teamed up with SunTran and Sam Levitz to gather donations for Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse.

The center helps families all throughout Southern Arizona in domestic violence situations. And this is an issue all around the country.

Every nine seconds, a woman is assaulted or beaten, and non-profits like Emerge! provide shelter for anyone going through this type of abuse.

They are looking for donations of new clothing, towels, blankets, old cell phones, toiletries, anything that might help a family get back on their feet.

Monetary donations will also be welcomed. The Arizona Lottery has agreed to match dollar for dollar every donation up to $10,000. So any donation you drop off will double.

You can take donations to the Sam Levitz parking lot at the corner of Broadway and Pantano. We will be out there until 6 p.m.

If you can't make it to that location, donations will be accepted online, and you can specify that your donation is for Stuff the Bus.
