The Divine Intervention & Prevention also know as (DIP) an outreach ministry for the prevention of domestic violence/abuse & hunger who has helped over 2,500 families in need is hosting the II Annual Tools 4 School Supply & Clothing Giveaway to lend a helping hand to students ages 4-18 that are in need. The event will be held at D.I.P. Outreach 2078 Cassat Ave Jacksonville, FL 32210 on Saturday August 4th @ 10am.
The average cost for back to school supplies and clothing is approximately $1500 according to NBC news, that is just as much as the average mortgage payment for many individuals. According to NCCP.org children make up 34 percent of people in poverty. Most low- income families have to look to the government for assistance, food, clothing, and other necessities such as; hygiene items and school supplies that are needed for children; many times this issue is not addressed on a regular basis or plaintively at all. No child wants to go to school without the proper clothing, shoes, or school supplies. The less fortunate seem to be one of the first to be bullied as a result of this particular lack. The community can support Tools 4 School Jax by donating gently used clothing, shoes, handbags, backpacks, costume jewelry, personal care items, new socks, & underwear, for all ages. For a detailed list visit www.facebook.com/diprestores or call (904) 438-4347.

If you feel good, you will always perform your best without worrying about anything- Maria Sharapova.” Here is an opportunity to help with giving over 300 students the supplies they need for a successful school year as, these children cannot reach their full potential without adequate support.

The pressures of celebrating the holidays sometimes causes tempers to flare, energy levels to soar and arguments to ensue, culminating in an explosion of domestic violence and abuse. Parties, celebrations and festivities are everywhere and the temptation for excess can be intoxicating. Alcohol, drugs, heightened emotions and the wrong combination of family members, are very often contributing factors in violent holiday explosions. In fact, the holiday season can be an exceptionally tough emotional period for many domestic violence victims, even children. Most loving mothers will do whatever is necessary to create a fun and festive holiday environment for her children, however, for children living in a home where violence occurs, very often, Christmas represents a prolonged period of trepidation due to the anticipation of violence.
D.I.P. Foundation is anon-profit that is working to prevent and end domestic violence by developing innovative programs and events that:
