Wear purple in October
In observance of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, large purple bows have been placed on trees in downtown Madras, at Madras City Hall, and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, by the staff from Saving Grace, and a work crew from Jefferson County Adult Probation.
To show support, local residents are encouraged to wear purple lapel ribbons during the "Purple Ribbon Campaign" this month. Those wanting ribbons can call Saving Grace at 541-475-1880. Anyone who is a victim of domestic violence can get help by calling the hotline at 541-389-7021.
