Stephen is giving back to the Northern Westchester Shelter for women, a safe haven for victims of domestic violence. "I've lived here my whole life, and I'm ashamed to say I haven't been involved with much of the charity that goes on," Stephen says. "I cannot wait to get started."
After talking to the shelter's director, Stephen learns that leaving a domestic violence situation is extremely dangerous for battered women. In order to assure the victims' protection, the shelter's security system is in desperate need of an upgrade.
"We're going to have a fundraising event at my house to help raise money for the renovations that the shelter's doing," Stephen says. "I am going to do my best to raise as much money as possible to make sure that the security system is in place."
