Family Refuge Center (FRC) and the Greenbrier County Elder Abuse Awareness Committee (GCEAAC) began their journey last year to bring awareness to Elder Abuse by implementing an Awareness Walk on Jun. 15, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. This walk was able to engage community members and community partners on Elder Abuse and the ways they can help.
This year, FRC and GCEAAC are doing more to bring awareness to the community by inviting the public to participate in the annual Elder Abuse Awareness Walk that will take place on Jun. 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the CAMC/GVMC Hospital track. Light refreshments will be provided, and Elder Abuse Awareness T-shirts are available for purchase upon arrival at the event.
We encourage everyone to join us as we help educate the community about how to recognize and prevent Elder Abuse! If you are interested in participating, please contact Family Refuge Center’s Abuse in Later Life Advocate, Kensley Shannon at 304-645-6324.
