Paint the Town Purple

First Step of Wichita Falls, Inc. has several opportunities for you to get involved during Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October. 

All month long, you're invited to participate in First Step's Second Annual "Paint the Town Purple" Awareness Campaign. The entire community is invited to tie purple ribbons around trees. hang purple lights, and/or wear purple clothing to honor those who lost their lives due to domestic violence. First Step, Inc. is also asking businesses and individuals to "Accept the Challenge" and challenge your friends and family to help raise funds by matching your donations. Call the office at 940-723-7799 for more information.

The 18th Annual Candlelight Vigil on October 15, 2020 will be held at the Wellington Banquet Center in Wichita Falls and live on our Facebook. This year's event will be a Come and Go walk-through event and masks are required for safety. Purple masks will be available at the door as long as supplies last. Please follow us on Facebook for more details. 

If you're interested in "Stepping Up for First Step," we are always looking for volunteers. Call 940-723-7799 to speak to our Volunteer Coordinator.
