Muncie, Indiana - April 2018

Muncie Aerie # 231 recently donated $20,000 to A Better Way, which is a non-profit that provides shelter and services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The donation will help fund the Passage Way program, where victims of domestic violence are given a transitional housing solution while they try to find a permanent residence.

Eddie Collins, president of Aerie #231 heard about their funding issue and wanted to help.  “Donating to A Better Way is something my wife and I feel strongly about. We have donated for years. Many of these women are in bad relationships and they often leave their homes with only the clothes on their backs. After the mayor came to speak to us, our organization felt we needed to help,” Collins said.
