100 Ways to Give: children’s books for Safe Haven Ministries


Please join the Academic Support Center and the Academic Testing Center as we collect children’s books in honor of GRCC’s 100th anniversary and on behalf of Safe Haven Ministries. Safe Haven Ministries offers comprehensive domestic abuse services to women and their children.

In the U.S., 15.5 million children live in families in which partner violence occurred at least once in the past year, and seven million children live in families in which severe partner violence occurred. The simple gift of a book can help provide comfort to a child as they struggle to deal with experiencing these acts of domestic violence.

Books can be dropped off at one of these locations:

  • Academic Support Office, 232 LRC or to any GRCC Tutorial Lab
  • Academic Testing Center, 325 SCC
  • Student Life
