Rainier employees help victims of domestic violence and “Adopt-A-Family” for the holiday season


This year employees of Rainier Overseas Movers Inc purchased and donated Christmas gifts for a mother and her 3 children through a local non-profit organization called DAWN (Domestic Abuse Women’s Network) so that a mother could provide a fun Christmas for her children. DAWN (www.dawnonline.org) is the only provider of comprehensive domestic violence services, including children’s programs, 24-hour Advocacy & Crisis Line, and emergency shelter for domestic violence victims in south King County. Their goal is to help people create healthy, peaceful lives, no matter what their circumstances.
Rainier employee Carrie Bredeson had already been helping raise money for DAWN and when she approached us with this idea we instantly knew that this was something we wanted to be a part of. Seeing the gifts coming in brought a smile to our faces, but picturing a mother providing gifts and Christmas to her children is a present in and of itself to us all.
