Many women healing from violent relationships and sexual assault are moms. They are doing all they can to heal and protect their children. The Battered Woman's Sheltered of Summit and Medina Counties will be remembering those mothers, this coming Mother's Day.

Roses and mixed bouquets will be sold to benefit local abused women and their children. Flowers will be shipped directly from a farm to the shelter, in Akron, guaranteeing fresher, longer-lasting flowers.

Bouquets are $30 for pick up and $35 for delivery to any Summit or Medina residence. Orders must be submitted by Friday, April 13th. Click here for a Flower Order Form or call 330-374-0740 ext. 203 to charge by phone.

Another opportunity to raise money for battered women in the Akron/Medina area is to make a tribute to your own mother, wife, aunt, or other special women who have made a difference in your life. The Akron Beacon Journal will be running a tribute page on Mother's Day with all proceeds going to the mother's residing in the shelter.

Adults (24 and older) will directly help two women and their children with a $100.00 tribute. Children (under 24)who make a tribute of $35 will provide emergency items for a one night stay in the shelter.

Tributes are due by April 27, 2012.Click on the Tribute Order Form or call 330-374-0740 ext. 203 to charge by phone.

Lastly, the Battered Woman's Shelter will be holding a Mother's Day brunch at the Sheraton Suites of Akron/Cuyahoga Falls. A percentage of the proceeds and local business donations will go directly to mothers needing protective shelter in 2012.

Consultants and products from Mary Kay, Longaberger, and Partylite will be at the brunch. Purchasing products are encouraged to make Mother's Day extra special for the women in your life.

Brunch is $34.95 per person. Reservations can be made after April 8th, 2012 at 330-920-7530.

Anyone who would like to be a sponsor or have products at the event can call Brittany at 330-860-5635.
