Montclair’s Women’s Empowerment Week, running from April 1 – 9, offers excellent events throughout the week for the community. More importantly, Montclair BID organizes the annual event to benefit SAVE of Essex, the county’s only designated rape care center and a program of the Family Service League.
Throughout April 1 – 9, local businesses — such as Park Street Auto (18 South Park Street, Montclair) — will be collecting donations for its Rape Care Packages. SAVE provides every sexual violence victim with a rape care package to help a victim restore his/her dignity after a sexual assault has occurred. Police take a victim’s clothing and undergarments as part of the evidence collection process.
