EA Cares

Our Impact

The Mission

EA Cares is committed to helping our community become a safer place and supporting women and children who have suffered from domestic violence.

The Purpose

In the United States, as many as one in four women are victims of domestic violence. A SAFE PLACE is a comprehensive domestic violence program for battered women and children.

EA Cares works closely within the community to fundraise and organize collection drives every month. Our promise is to donate a portion of all sales to A SAFE PLACE, a domestic violence shelter in Oakland. Collection drives will be hosted every month and the EA cares team will donate the items to the shelter every two weeks.
