Palm Beach County Clerk Sharon Bock Helps Victims Of Domestic Violence

Sharon Bock | Palm Beach County Clerk

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — It is somewhat sad that this needed, but Palm Beach County Clerk Sharon Bock and her crew deserve a round of applause for collecting hundreds of unused cell phones and repurposing them throughout Palm Beach County at domestic violence agencies. To put it another way: these phones are going primarily to women who have been abused, need to ditch their current cell phones with GPS tracking — and get new phones while they hide out awaiting law enforcement to do whatever needs to be done.

“The phones are being donated to three agencies: Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, the Florida Resource Center for Women and Children, and the YWCA’s Harmony House. The agencies will send the donated phones to be refurbished and then distributed to their clients, who can use them to make emergency calls. The phones also can be connected with service providers so abuse victims – who often arrive at shelters with nothing – can use the phones for other calls as well.”
