Response, a Shenandoah County community organization dedicated to preventing and helping people overcome the problems of sexual and domestic violence, is participating in Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a “Keep the Light Burning” campaign.

A candlelight walk is planned at 7 p.m. Monday at the gazebo in front of the Woodstock Town Hall.

Response is asking community members to honor domestic violence survivors and victims by having their own walk, lighting a candle or shining a light and participate in its month-long social media campaign by submitting pictures of how they have chosen to Keep the Light Burning and sending them to volcoor@shentel.net to be included on the organization’s Facebook page.

Keep the Light Burning signs are available on its website for printout and free Response flashlight keychains are available at area locations throughout the county.

Information: Terri Dellinger at 459-5599 or www.responseva.org.
