SARC participated in United Way's Day of Action on June 21st! Each year, United Way invites the community to volunteer with them to complete a big project in just one day. This year, volunteers prepared baby bundles for new parents that include a children's board book, handheld toy, and helpful information on family budgeting and community resources.
SARC attended Brazos County's 2018 Health and Safety Expo where we handed out materials about our programs and services to over 300 attendees! The event focused on connecting city and county  employees with available local resources and services.
Members of SARC's Education and Outreach and Counseling Departments visited the Brazos Valley Foodbank for the grand opening of their new facility in Bryan, Tx.  On our visit we learned new ways to connect SARC's clients with BVF's food resource programs.
Education and Outreach Specialist Esmer Casas visited law enforcement agencies throughout Robertson County to celebrate Donut Day. Donut Day is a national holiday celebrated the first Friday of June to celebrate the donut lassies who served treats to service members during the first World War. Since many law enforcement officers have military backgrounds and we all know they love donuts, SARC treated the Robertson County Sheriff's Office and all Robertson County police departments with donuts on Friday, June 1. 
SARC is excited to welcome Connie Martinez as our new Education and Outreach Specialist for Grimes, Leon, and Madison County! Connie started as an intern with SARC in February and after seeing the amazing work she does, we are thrilled to have her join the team as staff. Welcome, Connie!
             SARC is celebrating 35 Years of service to our community this fall at                         An Evening Under the Stars. More details to follow. 
SARC staff relies on a team of volunteers, advocates, interns, and practicum students to provide 24/7 crisis services to survivors throughout the Brazos Valley.  If you would like to join the team, please consider volunteering through one of our four programs described above. Interested volunteers can reach out through email reachingout@sarcbv.org or call by phone at 979.731.1000.
