Your Thanks: Generosity boosts violence survivor center in Beloit

The generosity of the Ironworks Hotel, formerly the Beloit Inn, and Hendricks Commercial Properties amazed our Leadership Development Academy team recently.

Our team chose to help the Beloit Domestic Violence Survivor Center as part of our project, “Shine the Light,” for our leadership classes. The Ironworks Hotel was being renovated, so our team asked if they would share with the survivor center some items they no longer needed. Our team was able to pick up cabinetry, food pantries, plates, silverware, towels, alarm clocks, lamps, mirrors, artwork, armoires, sofa sleepers, miniature refrigerators and much more!

With their support, we were able to help many of these women and children, not only to meet essential daily needs, but to work toward brighter futures with programs in job training, education, counseling and temporary housing.

With the help of many volunteers and our leadership team, we were able to move much-needed items from the Ironworks Hotel to the survivor center on Dec. 1 to assist with its important mission.

 The center will also be receiving a new kitchen with cabinetry taken from the Ironworks Hotel and being installed by carpenters, who will be donating their time and expertise, during Christmas break. This addition will bless many who stay in the shelter for years to come. Thank you Ironworks Hotel, Hendricks Commercial Properties and volunteers for making a difference in the lives of many women and children.

Merry Christmas!
