April Evenson wants to give back to the shelter, which gave her a chance to start over and heal. 

"I am a survivor of domestic violence and not a victim," said April who is also an advocate.  "I feel my purpose today is to be a voice for those who no longer have a voice. "

Donations will be collected all month long.  Workers will also wear purple t-shirts for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
