TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Fundraising efforts continued Wednesday for the Council on Domestic Abuse in Terre Haute.
The agency, also known as CODA, is in danger of suspending its residential services if it doesn’t raise $150,000 by September 14.
The Vigo County Sheriff’s Office hosted a carwash fundraiser for CODA, washing cars for donations at Show-Me’s.
Twelve deputies took part in the fundraiser. Derek Fell, Chief of Operations at the Vigo County Sheriff’s Office, says helping CODA is a cause that’s close to their hearts.
“In our professions as deputy sheriffs and police officers, unfortunately we do deal with a lot of domestic violence, so we know first hand the impact that it has,” says Fell.
There are other fundraisers for CODA planned in the coming days.
Baesler’s Market in Terre Haute will host a cookout for CODA on Saturday, August 31, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Terre Haute Police Department will hold a pizza sale and bake sale on September 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
