As the first Central New York hospital to support the Vera House White Ribbon Campaign, Crouse is proud to again be on board for the 17th annual community-wide effort to raise awareness and funds to end domestic abuse and sexual violence.
From March 25 through April 3 thousands of Central New Yorkers—including Crouse Hospital staff—will be wearing a white ribbon or white wristband to raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence. Wearing a white ribbon or wristband is an important statement that you will not support, commit or remain silent about abuse.
The White Ribbon Campaign is led by men and encourages all members of the community—men and women, young and old—to join them in their efforts. This male leadership helps acknowledge the important contributions men have made to this effort and invites others to take a role.
The 2010 White Ribbon Campaign involved over 30,000 people in the Greater Syracuse community. This year’s goal is to raise $70,000 by distributing more than 40,000 white ribbons to businesses, community organizations and places of worship. Please join Crouse Hospital in helping Vera House make the 2011 campaign a success. All proceeds raised are dedicated to the programs and services offered by Vera House.
