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.

Chris Brown has it wrong: The world, at times, isn’t loyal. Society tends to be loyal to the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Their minds are consumed with their own problems or scrolling down their Facebook timeline to get a glimpse of Kim Kardashian’s latest antics. As we enter into the holiday season and sit at our family dinner tables breaking bread and giving thanks, we can choose to un-follow society’s lead and ground ourselves into the spirit of giving to our fellowman in need. During November and December, stress runs high in most families. Finances are stretched to buy gifts or to travel to see family members. Seeing those family members we don’t quite get along with or not being able to see relatives and friends can add even more stress to a relationship. Excessive alcohol consumption is usually an added factor at this time of year. Sometimes our expectations of what should happen compared to what actually happens can give us the holiday blues. Many of us try to out do ourselves during the holidays and arguments happen. But what about abuse during the season? How can it be prevented?On Sunday, December 21 D.I.P. Foundation will be hosting its 2 Annual Food, Clothing & Toy Giveaway: 712 West Duval Street Jacksonville, FL 32202 at 2PM.

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:
