The Rochester Police Department is reaching out to help domestic violence victims.
The RPD’s Purple Box campaign kicked off Wednesday morning. You will find the purple boxes at the Public Safety Building and the hope is that people will fill the boxes with gifts that can go to families in the shelters who have escaped from a violent situation. Alternatives for Battered Women will help distribute the gifts.
The boxes will be available throughout October which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
