Philanthropy Spotlight: My Sister’s Place


By: Allison O’Brien, Account Associate, College Book Store

This year, College Book Store will be celebrating its 5th annual Moms
Weekend philanthropic event by donating 20% of Moms Weekend t-
shirt sales to My Sister’s Place. During Moms Weekend April 5-7 Ohio
University Moms can pick up a green or purple shirt to support My
Sister’s Place.

My Sister’s Place has been providing for women and children abuse
victims since 1977. They provide outreach counseling for the women
and children as well as providing a court advocate to handle legal
matters. The shelter features a 24-hour crisis hotline that anyone
can call to seek guidance and advice. My Sister’s Place also provides
emergency food, hygiene products, and clothing to their residents.
Donations from outside sources such as the Mom’s Weekend event
assist in the purchasing of these items. Most importantly, all goods and
services provided by My Sister’s Place are completely free of charge.

T-shirts are $9.99 each and you can pick one up from College Book
Store now through Moms Weekend or stop by the booth from 11 a.m.-
3 p.m. at the Moms Market this Saturday at Ping. At the Moms Market
booth you can also get a flyer for a free Ohio University moms pin to be
redeemed at the store. Go out and buy a t-shirt for you and your Mom,
and help benefit My Sister’s Place along the way!
