Wear Teal Day raises awareness of sexual assault
| NOVA staff and interns show off their teal garb and invite other groups to join them on Thursday, April 20, for Wear Teal Day for sexual assault awareness.
Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) has designated Thursday, April 20, as “Wear Teal Day” to raise awareness of sexual assault during National Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, and several community organizations and businesses in Bucks County have readily agreed to do the same in support of the initiative.
Among those groups and organizations joining NOVA staff and volunteers as they outfit and accessorize themselves in teal – the color of sexual assault awareness –are the United Way of Bucks County, Penn Foundation Behavioral Health, Univest, Penn Community Bank, QNB, Bucks County District Attorney’s office, Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency and the Central Bucks Family YMCA.
To encourage other individuals and organizations to participate and to make it easier for them to do so, NOVA Thrift Shop has collected a variety of teal shirts, skirts, ties, sweaters, scarves and jewelry. Shopping for these items at the new NOVA Thrift Shop, on Route 313 and Broad Street just below Dublin, means people can support NOVA’s programs and services while making others more aware of the issue of sexual assault in our communities.
