Paint the Towns Purple draws attention to Domestic Violence Awareness Month


A Woman’s Place (AWP), the only organization in Bucks County focused on domestic violence, hosted its annual event, Paint the Towns Purple on Sept. 25.
Staff and volunteers tied purple ribbons in several towns in Bucks County, including Doylestown, Quakertown, Bristol and New Hope. Businesses, restaurants and storefronts were also invited to display posters and information about domestic violence.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and is organizing several activities during Domestic Violence Awareness Month to bring the community together, raise awareness, honor survivors of domestic violence and advocate for lasting social change.

Events include the Young Adult Advisory Board’s 5-for-5 Fundraiser. The young volunteers will ask people to make a donation of $5, and then encourage these individuals to “pay it forward” by asking five more people. All proceeds will benefit programs and services at AWP.
More information about how to get involved and a full calendar of events planned for Domestic Violence Awareness Month is available on AWP’s website at
