STATEWIDE ORGANIZATIONS RECOGNIZE TEEN DATING VIOLENCE PREVENTION & AWARENESS MONTH

STATEWIDE ORGANIZATIONS RECOGNIZE TEEN DATING VIOLENCE PREVENTION & AWARENESS MONTH

Every year, thousands of teenagers across the State of Maine experience dating violence.  February is Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Month, a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in youth relationships and promote programs that focus on prevention. The Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence and the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault are calling on Mainers to help recognize this important month, not only for youth in Maine, but for communities statewide.

Dating violence is “controlling, abusive, and aggressive behavior in a romantic relationship. It occurs in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships and can include verbal, physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, or a combination of these behaviors.”  Dating violence often starts with what may seem like minor behavior, such as teasing and name calling.

SCOUTING FOR FOOD in Freeport and Pownal

The Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts of Freeport and Pownal have joined together in the month of November to fill the food pantry at Freeport Community Services.  Over the last few weeks the Boy Scouts have placed collection boxes for items at the Freeport Community Library, Freeport Town Hall, and many of the area banks and churches.  Collection boxes were also placed in the Freeport and Pownal schools. Bow Street Market hosted live food drives with not only the Boy Scouts, but also with students from the Freeport High School Rotary Interact Club for the past three weeks. 
The Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts began their efforts November 13th by going door-to-door in Freeport and Pownal, leaving bags from Shaws and flyers describing the project at each home.  The flyers asked community members to fill the bags with non-perishable food, paper goods, or personal care items.
All efforts will come together in celebration this Saturday, November 20th.
