First Step Holds Cook-Out

First Step a local non profit that provides services and shelter for victims of violence had a cook-out Saturday afternoon.  From 10am until 3pm they sold hot dogs, burgers, and all the fixings in front of Big Lots.  This is the third year of the 'Rock Against Violence' event where they hope to not only raise money but bring about awareness for victims of family violence and sexual assault.

"We are raising money to help at our shelter.  There are women, men and children who are in a domestic violence or sexual assault situation.  All the proceeds will go for that area and everything that we do for them is free of charge," said Charlotte Marsh with First Step.

First Step also has a retail clothing store located on Indiana where you can buy clothes that will in turn benefit the non-profit.
