Food And Clothing Drive For Penelope House

Strings for Beans
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Andy’s Music and D’Addario Strings have teamed up to stock the closets and food pantry at Penelope House.

On Saturday, October 26, 2013, from 10:00am to 3:00pm, bring us some canned goods or usable clothing for Penelope House, and we’ll restring your guitar in appreciation of your kindness.

The fine print:  This offer is limited to one 6-string guitar per customer – no locking tremolo systems please. Acoustic guitars will be strung with D’Addario EJ16’s,  and electric guitars EXL110’s.

Penelope House is a non-profit organization established in 1979 by the Daughters of Penelope to help victims of domestic violence regain social and economic independence. The Family Violence Center is the only shelter for battered women and children in Mobile, Alabama, although services currently span across Mobile and Washington counties in Alabama.

Services offered by Penelope House include advocacy, community education, counseling, on-site medical care, schools prevention education, transitional living, and victims’ support groups.

In addition to its services, a 24-hour crisis line (251) 342-8994 was established by Penelope House to provide prompt counseling, information and referral services to individuals in abusive and/or violent situations.
