Mclean, Virginia (July 10, 2019) – The Rotary Club of Warrenton made a financial donation to the Just Ask Trafficking Prevention Foundation to help fund ongoing efforts to prevent human trafficking in the local community.
“Rotary International has six areas of focus, one of which is to save mothers and children,” said Tanya Wilcox, president, Rotary Club of Warrenton. “Human trafficking puts many of our most vulnerable at risk each day. Awareness is key in putting a stop to human trafficking. It is through the efforts of organizations like “Just Ask Prevention” that communities are given the knowledge to assist in recognizing what may be taking place right in front of their eyes and how to take the appropriate action. The Warrenton Rotary Club is proud to support the effort of the “Just Ask Prevention” organization in promoting safety and awareness in our committee and around the world.”
The Rotary Club of Warrenton, established in 1926, is an organization of business and professional leaders united within our community who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world
In addition to their generous and ongoing financial support, the Rotary Club of Warrenton has been a key community partner with the Just Ask Trafficking Prevention Foundation. They created the Fauquier County Human Trafficking Prevention Project: Warrenton Rotary, which resulted in a series of community-based awareness and advocacy events which lead to the education and empowerment of thousands of Fauquier county residents.
“The Rotary Club of Warrenton has been an ongoing partner for us, and their support has allowed us to do amazing work in the community,” said Bill Woolf, executive director, Just Ask Trafficking Prevention Foundation. “We are thankful for their continued support, and we will use this donation to help safeguard the community of Fauquier County.”
