PHOENIX — KTAR’s Community Spotlight this month focuses on Trajan Wealth’s annual charity drive for Sojourner Center, a safe haven from domestic violence in Arizona.
The sixth annual drive for the Hope Holiday program, ran by Trajan Wealth, works to help benefit those living in a domestic violence household, founder and CEO Jeff Junior said.
“When we first started this program six years ago I was…shocked at…the frequency of domestic violence here in Arizona,” Junior said.
“Every five minutes police get called to a domestic violence scene, which is just crazy, and the vast majority of it involves kids. Now obviously, having a couple kids in myself, that’s a soft spot in my heart.”
Junior said the items with the highest demand are the daily essentials, including bedding, socks, underwear, diapers and formula.
A full list of items the center needs can be found online.
“Just imagine if you just had to immediately leave your home, what would be the items that would be in the biggest demand for you?” Junior said.
