Solly’s Baglry Supports Battered Women’s Support Services this Mother’s Day Weekend

For the second consecutive year Solly’s Baglry will accept donations for Battered Women’s Support Services this Mother’s Day Weekend.

Here’s their press release & store locations:

May 2, 2011
Press release:    
Mother’s day is one of the most celebrated special days in the western world.  When I was a long distance operator many many years ago (when there was no such thing as direct long distance dialing,) Mother’s Day was the busiest day in the year. The phone lines were plugged up all day.  We all have mothers, and on this special day many of us take the opportunity to thank them for their hard work and effort.
 Unfortunately many mothers and women live in situations that are not supportive.  One  in four women across the world experience domestic abuse either physical or mental or both.  Contrary to what many think, abuse crosses all nationalities, all religions,  It can happen in your neighbour’s homes, among the rich and the poor, to the educated and non educated, to Jews and to non Jews. 

On Mother’s Day, Solly’s Bagelry, a corporate sponsor of Battered Women’s Support Services and Jewish Women’s International’s ASTEH house ( a shelter for Jewish women escaping abuse) will be asking customers for donations to each of these worthwhile causes which both support and counsel women, guiding them to safety and to more healthier lives.  Our support for these two organizations will continue in the months and years to come.
Thank you,
