A Milford-based nonprofit, the Maren Sanchez Home Foundation (MSHF), launched a #GivingTuesday campaign to raise money that will allow it to expand its workshops and self-defense programs for girls and young women to locations across the country.
“The mission of our foundation is to educate and empower girls and young women to defend themselves against emotional, psychological and verbal manipulation and physical violence,” said Donna Cimarelli, founder and CEO of MSHF. “Our goal is to raise $25,000 on Giving Tuesday to help bring our training to more places. Our lectures and workshops help girls, young women, and parents learn to recognize concerning behavior. And we offer a life-changing HER-Self Defense class led by MMA fighter “Notorious” Nick Newell.”
