Two WPS volunteers and one employee of WPS received certificates of appreciation at the
Crime Victims’ Rights Week Awards Ceremony on April 25th at LakeRidge United Methodist Church. This ceremony, which was put on the Lubbock Crime Victim Coalition,
sought to give recognition and thanks to individuals in the Lubbock community who have gone above and beyond to support victims of crime. Alyssa Edstrom, the VP of Philanthropy of Alpha Chi Omega, Johnson Fung, a long-time volunteer at WPS, and Steven Garcia, the Coordinator of Legal, Community Education and Outreach at WPS, were all nominated to receive this award for their dedication to our organization, as
well as their influential work with victims of crime in Lubbock County. Women’s Protective Services is truly blessed to have such incredible volunteers and staff members and we are so happy to see their efforts acknowledged at last week’s ceremony!
The Lubbock chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, an international
social and service sorority, recently made an extremely generous donation to
Women’s Protective Services. WPS would like to say ‘thank you’ to this amazing
group of women; your donation is greatly appreciated!
