We are so fortunate to receive donations in a myriad of ways. From toiletry drives to percentage of proceeds events at local businesses, people find so many ways to give to Compass Center.
One of the most creative and successful fundraisers for Compass Center in the last year was generated by Chapel Hill Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Last Spring, they brought jiu-jitsu friends from across the Eastern NC together to raise $4,000 for Compass Center in a "Roll-A-Thon" or "sparring"event.
"I can't tell you how many people came up to me and were so glad I suggested this event because
they know someone who has been in a bad situation," said Lourdes, one of the key organizers of the event. "Everyone had a story. My primary focus for the donation was to create awareness. I wanted people to know that if they needed help, there was somebody out there.
I'm really excited that we raised a lot of money, but even if we reached just one person that found Compass Center and found their voice to get out of their situation, that is the win."
