2012-12-21 21:06:51 - The holidays are a time for giving. For many business owners that means more than buying gifts for family and friends but giving back to the communities in which they do business. In that spirit, The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III recently made a $500 donation to the Children’s Cove Center, The Cape and Islands Advocacy Center.
DATELINE: HYANNIS, AND PLYMOUTH, MA…
Children's Cove is a Barnstable County agency dedicated to helping the Cape & Islands communities respond to allegations of child abuse in ways that are effective and efficient and put the needs of child victims of abuse first. Children’s Cove is a freestanding, child-friendly facility designed to ensure that victims of child sexual abuse and their non-offending family members have access to support and services in a safe, respectful, and compassionate environment.
“For families torn apart by instances of child sexual abuse, the holidays can be an extremely difficult time of year,” said John C. Manoog III, a personal injury attorney and principal of the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III. “We wanted to donate
to the Children’s Cove to help make the holidays a little brighter for residents of the center and to let people at the agency know their work is appreciated by the community.”
As one of 11 Child Advocacy Centers in Massachusetts, Children's Cove is an accredited agency through the National Children's Alliance that provides coordinated and comprehensive services to child victims and their family members. In 2009, Children’s Advocacy Centers around the country served over 254,000 child victims of abuse, providing victim advocacy and support to these children and their families.
“You can’t undervalue the services Children Cove provides,” said Manoog. “I encourage all Cape business owners to reach into their pockets this holiday season and donate to this very worthy cause.
