El Paso-area Allstate agency owners will collect critical supplies through November 16 to benefit the Center Against Sexual and Family Violence and the domestic violence survivors they serve.
The most-needed items include shampoo, body wash, bar soap, baby wipes, and diapers, and a full list can be found at online.
Domestic violence programs across the country frequently lack sufficient funding and often operate with limited resources. Through their volunteer efforts of hosting supply drives, the agency owners will secure an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grant which will enable the Center Against Sexual & Family Violence to further its work in the community.

One in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime regardless of socio-economic background or ethnicity. Financial abuse occurs in 99 percent of all domestic violence cases.
Since 2005, The Allstate Foundation, through its Purple Purse initiative, has invested over $60 million to raise public awareness of domestic violence and financial abuse and has empowered more than 1.3 million survivors on the road to safety and security through financial education resources.
The supply drives are part of a multi-city Allstate Foundation Purple Purse effort to raise awareness and help domestic violence nonprofits in 15 cities across Texas.
