Rapid City anti-violence organization gives back to law enforcement

Posted:

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and those who work to end violence against women and their children in KOTA Territory are being thanked in a very sweet way.

Working Against Violence Incorporated or WAVI hosted Judicial and First Responder's Appreciation Day for the tenth year.

All of the staff at WAVI took the time to bake cookies and muffins, and deliver them to agencies who help fight against domestic violence. Law enforcement officers were also treated to free massages.

Executive director, Mary Corbine says this is just one of the things they do to promote awareness.

"WAVI works to create a community free of domestic violence and sexual assault through advocacy education and support services. We work also to help keep victims safe, help with protection orders. And we couldn't do what we do without the help of law enforcement, the state's attorney's office, and the judicial system," said Mary Corbine, Executive Director of WAVI.

WAVI served 2,187 victims of domestic violence last year, and assisted with 101 protection orders.

Karl Merbach, superintendent of the Solid Waste Operations, said the city decided to take the money it would have used to repair the Fairmont site and build the new facility.
