MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Young Professionals of Meridian presented a $6,000 check Monday to Care Lodge Domestic Violence Shelter.
The money raised comes from events organized by YPM like the 59Twenty Music Festival. Officials with the shelter say it will go a long way to helping victims of domestic violence.
"Our support for YPM is exponential. Their dedication to us has been just wonderful," said Sarah Smith, community coordinator for Care Lodge. "It's a great way for the community to come together and raise awareness and support for domestic violence."
