DSVS receives $25K donation from Sibanye-Stillwater, Wheaton Precious Metals International
By DSVS Staff
Domestic and Sexual Violence Services (DSVS) is pleased to announce that Sibanye-Stillwater and Wheaton Precious Metals International have donated a combined $25,000 to assist the organization in providing community-based services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Sibanye-Stillwater donated $15,000 and Wheaton Precious Metals International donated $10,000.
“This generous donation comes at a critical time. The COVID-19 pandemic has created increased financial hardship for our clients. Many have been unable to pay for basic necessities such as rent, utilities, daycare, and groceries. These funds will be a great benefit for these families and will help those we know will need us in 2021,” said Kelly Heaton, Executive Director of DSVS.
Sibanye-Stillwater and Wheaton Precious Metals share a partnership and commitment to supporting the communities where company employees live and work. Sibanye-Stillwater operates the platinum and palladium mine in Nye, and mine employees live in surrounding communities throughout the region. DSVS maintains offices in Columbus and Red Lodge and serves domestic violence and sexual assault survivors throughout Stillwater and Carbon counties.
