Bulloch County Sexual Assault Task Force fundraiser now underway
The Bulloch County Sexual Assault Task Force (BCSATF) is a community effort that assists victims of sexual assault. The group has offered a 24 hour a day/7 days a week rape crisis hotline (531-1771) since 2003 and has trained more than 100 crisis advocates. The crisis advocates assist rape victims at East Georgia Regional Medical Center and are available to accompany victims to the police department or sheriff’s office.
The BCSATF is holding its annual fundraiser, Pecans Galore, through Monday, Dec. 31, to raise money to continue the rape crisis hotline.
The group is offering gift-wrapped bags of freshly picked Georgia pecans in the following flavors: chocolate covered (12 oz.), cinnamon covered (8 oz.) and deliciously glazed (8 oz.). They are also offering large pecan halves that can be used for baking. Prices will vary between $6 and $9 per bag.
To order pecans, contact Linda Rohrer Paige, professor in the Department of Literature and Philosophy at Georgia Southern University and co-chair of BCSATF, at 681-0232 or 536-4164.
