St. Charles police urging residents to shine a light for domestic violence awareness

ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department is distributing a limited number of free purple lights to residents who want to help raise awareness of domestic violence.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The St. Charles Police Department and the Elgin Community Crisis Center are working to light up the Elgin and St. Charles area to raise awareness.

Residents can help the Community Crisis Center by shining a purple light on your porch throughout October.

The Purple Light Nights is a campaign designed to shine a light on a problem that often is silenced by shame.

The porch lights will be given to the first 70 people. Come to the St. Charles Police Department, 211 N. Riverside Ave., St. Charles, during the following hours: 6 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. It is closed Sundays.

For information or to purchase a purple light, call the Community Crisis Center at 847-742-4088.
Proceeds benefit the Community Crisis Center.
