Supporting the YWCA
San Diego, CA; Jan. 2012 – Merchant Services, an Alliance Partner of SBGA, has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the community, and this winter is no exception. The Irvine-based company recently donated $500 to Becky’s House®, a Domestic Violence Program run by the YWCA of San Diego County.
“Our hope is to provide assistance to charitable groups with a specific focus on children and families in need,” shared Senior Vice President of Merchant Services Bob Parisi. “Becky’s House is a phenomenal program and we are proud to support their efforts in providing a safe haven for women and children in their time of need.”
The Becky’s House® Domestic Violence Program supports the individual’s journey from victim to survivor to achiever. The program includes a 30-day domestic violence emergency shelter and two 18-month transitional living programs for victims of domestic violence and their families.
