Proudly Supporting Sexual Assault Centre kingston.
Accessible, confidential, and non-judgemental support for survivors of sexual violence.
This year we are proud to support the Sexual Assault Centre Kingston (SACK), an organization that aims to offer free, confidential, and non-judgmental support and counselling to all survivors of sexual violence, regardless of age or gender.
Since its inception in 1978, SACK has been contributing to the prevention and awareness of sexual violence in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox, and Addington communities. Apart from individual counselling sessions, SACK also facilitates workshops, classes, and group events for all members of the Kingston area communities. Their mandate is to promote social change and eventually eradicate sexual violence through a three-pronged approach: support of survivors, community education, and systemic change.
The funds raised through VCFS will be distributed to the specific services at SACK that are highest in demand. First, donations can provide capital for the underfunded and highly requested Indigenous Counselling Program as well as for the maintenance and expansion of youth counselling services. In addition, financial support will also enable SACK to launch a pilot project to develop an online chat and text crisis line that will promise to offer year-round 24/7 support to members of the Kingston community.
Your partnership with the Vogue Charity Fashion Show this year can enable SACK to expand their programs and connect with a larger audience to spread awareness about this prevalent social issue. We are ecstatic to begin this journey with SACK, and hope that we can count on your support to strengthen the Kingston community and eradicate sexual violence.
