COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - This week marks Domestic Violence Awareness Week, and local groups are doing their part to spread awareness on the issue.
Domestic Violence Roundtable, Inc. passed out small gift bags filled with resources, coupons, flyers and helpful information to members of the community at the intersection of Wynton and Buena Vista roads.
Organizers talked about the reach an event like this one can have.
"Last year we reached over 1,000 people in our community," said Rhonda Dial with Domestic Violence Roundtable Inc. "People call now without law enforcement being involved just so they can escape a domestic violence situation."
This is the third year for this event.
