Someplace Safe tea moves online
Each April, Someplace Safe in Alexandria hosts a TEA fundraiser to support its work supporting survivors of domestic violence and other crimes.
With the coronavirus pandemic closing everything down, however, organizers had to think of other ways to generate revenue.
Now, saying the need has never been greater, it is holding its 11th annual Spring Tea: A Non-Event Fundraiser online.
Supporters can buy $25 tickets at its non-event at events.idonate.com/alexspringtea or make a donation at www.someplacesafe.info/donate and select “Spring Tea Fundraiser-Alexandria." Donations can also be made via texting “@sps” to 52014.
It is also holding a virtual silent auction every Saturday throughout April at facebook.com/someplacesafe.
TEA stands for Teaching Everyone Advocacy. Someplace Safe, a non-profit group, offers services to victims and survivors of crime, families and communities in a nine-county region in west-central Minnesota. The organization works on behalf of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, sex trafficking, labor trafficking and other crimes, including stalking, elder abuse, identity theft, robbery, theft and more.
