Glendale Holds “Purple Out” to Raise Domestic Violence Awareness

Glendale’s school colors might not contain purple, but for one day the school was bathed in purple from top to bottom.

The school sponsored a “Purple Out” on October 11th to raise awareness of domestic violence problems in our schools and community as a part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month & to raise funds for local domestic violence prevention organization Harmony House.

“I’m so proud of our Glendale students and staff for their support of Harmony House,” Josh Groves, Glendale principal, said in a statement. “I’m proud of this community for raising awareness, funds and goods for those impacted by domestic violence.”

The student-led campaign included selling purple T-shirts for $8 with all proceeds benefiting the Harmony House “iCare” campaign. The students also accepted donations for Harmony House and conducted a raffle at their home football game with Camdenton.
