Siouxland Spouses Behind the Shield collecting donations for CSADV

A local group called Siouxland Spouses Behind the Shield is looking to collect donated goods to help the Council on Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence.

They're asking the community to take a stand against domestic violence and help these victims.

Until October 11th, they'll be collecting items like unused or good condition clothes for adults and children, hygiene products, and even over-the-counter medications.

"We not only support our law enforcement spouses, we support each other," said Angie Moritz.

"We would love our group to get a large donation to give to CSADV so we just ask that the whole entire community helps us, help CSADV," Mary Lee Simoni continued.

"When you're helping someone less fortunate, it's something very honorable and we're very proud to help because luckily we do have the support of our group," said Juanita Sands.

Siouxland Spouses Behind the Shield is made up of men and women whose spouses work for any Siouxland law enforcement agency.

This year, they came together to support CSADV, a non-profit group that helps victims of sexual assault and domestic violence by providing them with resources and support.

"So the ability to show up and have some of those things provided is huge. You don't have to worry about that. That's one thing you don't have to worry about," said Deb Hogan with CSADV.

If you'd like to donate, you can give those items to a Siouxland Spouse, or drop it off at the Sioux City Police Station or at the CSADV office before October 11th.
