Foreign Film Night for Domestic Violence Awareness

In support of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, HGTC Professor Valerie Falbo will present: Te Doy Mis Ojos, a film about a couple’s struggle to conquer the demons of domestic abuse that threaten their marriage and family. The community is invited to view the film on Wednesday, October 16 from 5 PM – 7 PM in the Burroughs and Chapin Auditorium on the HGTC Conway Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

The presentation of the film will be in another language from another part of the world but will emphasize the common threads that define domestic abuse patterns and address the effects of domestic abuse on families regardless of linguistic, economic, religious, racial and/or cultural backgrounds.

Discussion will be held in Spanish and English immediately following the film hosted by Dr. Maravillas Lencina, HGTC Associate Professor of Spanish. Local support agencies will provide literature and contact information. For questions or more information about the event, contact Valerie Falbo.

We Need Your Help!

Backpack Buddies, a division of Help4Kids, is a community service event sponsored by the TUA Human Services Honor Society at HGTC that students, staff, and faculty participate in each month to help feed children in need. We pack bags with non-perishable food items to help children at Kingston Elementary School that may not have enough food at home during the weekends. The Lowcountry Food Bank provides us with this food each month and these bags are delivered to the school and distributed to the children on Fridays.
