Thanks for SAFE San Juans support | Letters

Thank you, community members, for your overwhelming support of SAFE San Juans during our first annual SAFE on the Rocks Twilight Glow 5K run for Sexual Assault Awareness Month! Your generosity and involvement over these past few months have been astounding! We had such a wonderful number of community businesses who came alongside us as corporate sponsors. We also experienced incredible volunteer support in pulling off the logistics that made the runs fun for everyone. With over 300 runners participating in our three runs on San Juan, Orcas and Lopez Islands, we certainly consider the events a success, thanks to your, our awesome community partners.

We also would like to thank you for your continued support of our Stand Up Men group. As the guys begin to branch out into the Orcas and Lopez communities, it so great to know that their mission to challenge abuse and change lives is echoed by so many in our island home.

Lastly, we would love to share a special thank you to all those who gave to our cause in the recent Give Orcas campaign! Through your generosity, our Orcas Island prevention work will continue to move forward, impacting kids of all ages.

As a community-focused agency, it is so wonderful to know that we can count on our fellow community members, as we work to keep our “rocks” SAFE. Our support services for survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault are always free and confidential. If you or someone you know needs help, please reach out to us at 378-2345.

In addition, we work hard to provide high-quality prevention and awareness services to over 800 of our kids in school, as well as to our communities directly. If you are interested in learning more or scheduling a presentation, please give us a call at 378-8680, find us on Facebook, or visit our website at

Together we can continue to make our islands the safe San Juans because everyone deserves to live free of abuse.
