Serve women in need at April James Interiors

r By Valerie Keller

Fear. Abuse. Pain. Uncertainty. Loss of hope.

This is experienced by battered, refugee and sexually abused women in our community as well as throughout the nation. As of 2015, there were more than 65 million refugees in the world. In the United States, one in three women experience physical or sexual abuse. Although this is a prevalent and often overwhelming issue, there are many resources to assist and provide relief.

April James Interiors is hosting a Serve Someone Saturday on Saturday, Oct. 8, for Hearts Knit Together, a nonprofit organization dedicated to this cause. April James Interiors is located at 49 E. 1000 North in Spanish Fork.

April’s passion about issues like this, as well as her personal connection to the organization, drove her to begin this tradition. Linda Simmons, April’s mother, is the director of this Utah-based program. In it’s beginning, Hearts Knit Together produced a few hundred kits per year. Now the organization is producing thousands.

“I’ve watched as a small group of inspired and motivated individuals – who were in poverty themselves – decided to make a difference and give what they could to help and lift others,” said April. “I’m excited to get our community involved in such an amazing program!”

What you can do:

1. April James Interiors is donating supplies to assemble journals to be placed in recovery kits. Come in throughout the day to help make them.

2. Support our needs drive. Bring bath towel donations (children and adult) as well as new or gently used Halloween costumes for children on Oct. 8. Go to heartsknittogether.org for a complete list of needed items. April James interiors is a needs drop off station during any open hours, not just Serve Someone Saturday.

What April will do: In addition to hosting this event and donating journal supplies, 10 percent of sales on Oct. 8 will go to Hearts Knit Together. April will continue to host Serve Someone Saturdays for Hearts Knit Together and looks forward to the opportunity to join with its customers in making a difference one day at a time.
