Got Five Minutes? Here’s a Simple Way You Can Support the YWCA’s Efforts to Prevent Child Abuse: CTF Specialty License Plates

Every day, the YWCA St. Joseph works to help prevent child abuse through parent education classes, counseling and safe shelter for families at risk. You can help prevent child abuse by proudly displaying the official Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) license plate on your vehicle. CTF plates feature the distinctive child’s green hand prints logo and a ‘prevent child abuse’ message. Funds generated annually by the CTF plates make a huge impact on child abuse prevention across the state of Missouri, and also locally for the YWCA’s efforts.

How to order a Specialty License Plate (or support the YWCA’s child abuse prevention efforts):

1) Want your plates or donation to directly benefit the YWCA? Go online and buy the CTF plates, designating the YWCA St. Joseph as the sole beneficiary of your $25 license plate donation. http://ctf4kids.org/how-you-can-help/license-plates/
2) Go to the License Bureau and purchase your plate in-person (Note: if buying in person, the funds will be divided between St. Joseph YWCA and St. Joseph Youth Alliance).
