Family Crisis Council gets Food Lion Foundation grant

The Family Crisis Council of Salisbury-Rowan has received a $2,500 contribution from the Food Lion Charitable Foundation to help feed local residents. The agency will use the gift to provide food for its shelter, which gives women and children a safe harbor and helps lead them towards a violence-free future.
The Crisis Council provided shelter and food for more than 170 women and children in 2013.
“This unexpected donation from Food Lion will allow us to allocate other funds to the other services we provide to our victims such as group sessions, individual counseling, court advocacy, emergency room accompaniment, prevention programs and transportation,” Renee Bradshaw, executive director of the Family Crisis Council, said in a news release.
The mission of the FCC is to empower victims of rape, sexual assault, incest and domestic violence take back their lives. It is a United Way Agency.
Established in 2001, the Food Lion Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $9 million in grants.
