STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) - The Family Crisis Center in Stevens Point received a bit of a makeover, thanks to some volunteers Thursday.
The center is operated by CAP Services, and provides shelter and emergency services to individuals and families that need relief from domestic abuse & sexual assault.
One of the volunteers is Mary Burard, who says the rooms just needed a little freshening up. “Well, it just needs tuning up. I know when people need a safe place to go, they’re probably not worried too much about what it looks like, but we would like to give them a comfortable place.”
A few of the families at the center had to be moved around so the volunteers could work, but they accomplished a lot thanks to the staff of one area business. “We had eleven or twelve volunteers come in today, scraping wallpaper, washing, painting from Associated Bank, so kudos to them. We couldn’t do it without them.”
The painting project coincides with the Crisis Center’s 35th anniversary, and was also part of United Way’s Make A Difference Day projects.
