BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Middle Way House held a yarn-cutting ceremony on the Monroe County Courthouse lawn Friday, October 6, to launch 2017’s Wrapped in Love art display, which raises awareness and funds for the nonprofit emergency shelter and rape crisis center.
This is the sixth year for the project started by the late Toby Strout, former executive director of Middle Way House, and Mary Ann Gingles, owner of Yarns Unlimited.
A new addition this year is the Wrapped in Love Benefit Sunday, October 8, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Fountain Square Mall Ballroom. The event commemorates the tree wrap project, which is held each year in October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Middle Way House, which serves six counties in southern Indiana, provides shelter, advocacy, housing and legal services to survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and sexual assault.
