(February 6, 2023) Elkins Park Principal Dr. Crystal Clark and several students turned over a check for more than $1,400 to Laurel House from the funds raised from EP’s MLK Day of Service walk-a-thon. Laurel House representatives Gabby Southworth (community educator), Maureen Murray (community education coordinator) and Jill Deeves (donor relations specialist) were on hand to chat with Dr. Clark and students.
Laurel House is a comprehensive domestic violence agency serving individuals, families, and communities throughout Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The agency’s name was selected because of the beauty of the laurel, Pennsylvania’s state flower. It represents a victory for people who have taken the courageous first step of reaching out to Laurel House in their efforts to build a violence-free life for themselves and their children.
