Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center Events
Here’s a unique way to support the MCCAC from their May newsletter: “For a minimum donation of $25, you
can honor your friends or family on their birthday and support a young victim of abuse on theirs. By joining
the MCCAC’s Birthday Club, you will ensure that a child abuse victim in Monongalia County will receive a
card and present on his/her birthday. If the donation is made in honor, or memory, of a friend or family
member his/her birthday will be recognized on the MCCAC Birthday Calendar and they will receive a card
informing them of the donation in their honor. This is a great opportunity to support a great cause and
ensure that a young child abuse victim has a happy birthday!” For more information on this opportunity and
the upcoming event on August 20 at the Tug Boat Depot in Star City, go to www.moncocac.org.
Morgantown Human Rights Commission
