To the Editor:
Current economic conditions have impacted the ability of Iowa families to provide safe and stable homes for their children. Unfortunately, at a time when families need more help than ever to face these new challenges, there are fewer resources to provide support.
There is a simple and important way for you to help make families stronger and children safer. By donating a portion of your state tax returns to the Iowa Child Abuse Prevention Program, you can support services that prevent child abuse before it occurs.
Under the direction of Prevent Child Abuse Iowa, this program helps 65,000 Iowa children each year. Whether you are planning to spend your refund or save it, imagine the difference that even a few of those dollars could make in the life of a child. Your donation will specifically support projects in your community that work to prevent child abuse before it happens by building strong and healthy families.
