Help Protect Children From Abuse

by Jessica Cervantez

Did you know every few seconds a child is physically or sexually abused across the nation?

Which is why the Angelina Alliance for Children works hard to advocate for children who have been violated. And, you can help their effort.

You have until 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening to head out to the Pitser Garrison Civic Center and attend this year's art show and auction. The money raised will help provide funds for the alliance.

Amy Donahoe, a forensic interviewer, said, "This abuse definitely occurs in East Texas more than people realize.  In the past when reports were made of child abuse, children would have to go and talk to several different people, different agencies, with the alliance for children they are able to come to one place and tell their story."

Funds raised help to support the recovery of abused children.
