"To date, our work has allowed more than 384,000 women to take steps towards stronger, happier, violence-free lives. And we're on track to financially empower 500,000 survivors by the end of 2015," said the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse website. 

"I want to help make a difference in the lives of women and children affected by domestic violence," said Lori Cicali, owner of Heights Insurance Agency.  

"We have been part of the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse campaign for three years, since the beginning," said Jennifer Vriens, Director of Development for YWCA of Union County. "We had a very successful campaign last year and we are looking forward to a successful campaign this year. The most important thing is that the funding helps serve women who are trying to get back on their feet and become independent of abuse."  

"We are thrilled to work with the Allstate Foundation and especially the Heights Insurance Agency and Lori Cicali," said Vriens.

Donation can be made through the YWCA Union County's Purple Purse Team Page , or after October 27th, donate on the website and note "Cash for Quotes."
