After meeting with leadership and caseworkers from A Safe Place, a domestic abuse shelter and crisis center serving Lake County residents, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is announcing that he will be launching a supplies drive for the not-for-profit organization.

“My visit to A Safe Place helped to shine a light on the need for greater protections for victims of domestic abuse and the need to continue protecting state funding for these vital community programs,” Yingling said. “After meeting with them and touring their facility, it became abundantly clear to me that the entire community can help A Safe Place thrive. They are always in need of supplies, such as paper towels, toilet paper and toiletries , and I invite my community to join me in helping to collect some of this basic but critical supplies for domestic violence survivors and their children.”
