Current Projects

Gift Card and Supplies Drive

The ICSEW’s Public Outreach Subcommittee has a vested interest in supporting community organizations that share the ICSEW values of Wellness, Advocacy, Leadership, Integrity, Fostering growth and Empowerment. Each year, the public outreach subcommittee coordinates a charitable project for a local non-profit organization or community program. Past organizations have included the YWCA of Olympia’s Other Bank.

For 2020-2021, the ICSEW Public Outreach Subcommittee has chosen to sponsor a gift card and supplies drive for organizations that provide services and resources to women and individuals who are victims of domestic violence. In light of the COVID 19 pandemic, police departments and civic groups are reporting a spike in domestic violence cases because mandated stay-at-home orders have put victims in close proximity to their abusers.

Non-profit organizations that assist domestic violence victims are reporting logistic and financial difficulties in delivering supplies and resources. Furthermore, local businesses have been impacted by the pandemic through the reduction in sales and operating hours. The Public Outreach subcommittee wanted to sponsor a project to help charitable organizations as well as local businesses.
