Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach Donates Turkeys to the WomenShelter of Long Beach
Since 1977, WSLB has helped thousands of families overcome the trauma caused by domestic abuse.
November 22, 2011 – Signal Hill, Calif. – Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach has made a donation of 29 turkeys to the WomenShelter of Long Beach, which will help in providing a warm Thanksgiving meal for the women and children who live there.
For over 30 years, the mission of WSLB (WomenShelter of Long Beach) has been to eliminate domestic violence through compassionate intervention, education and personal empowerment.
“Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach is extremely proud to have made a donation to the WomenShelter of Long Beach,” said Bob Milner, General Manager. “This organization has been helping people in our community for years, so it is only right to return the favor any way we can.”
In 1977, Virginia Corbett, founded WomenShelter of Long Beach and donated the house that was used as the first shelter. Ms. Corbett was a local psychologist and activist who became frustrated when she realized that her clients who were victims of domestic violence had no place to go when they wanted to leave their batterers. The 4-bedroom, 11-bed shelter was one of the first in Southern California, part of a growing movement to provide assistance for battered women and their children.
WSLB will be recognized as the premier organization that fosters a community free from domestic violence. Due to the efforts, families and individuals will live in peace, love and harmony. Parents will raise their children in a respectful loving environment, surrounded by joy and laughter. WSLB will inspire others to eliminate domestic violence in their communities.
