About the Campaign

Originating in 2017, the Paint 757 Purple campaign has brought in support from more than 70 different businesses as well as local media and news outlets. What started as an innovative way to grow our support base from our 5k fundraising event in past years, turned into a meaningful way for businesses to get their employees and customers talking about the realities of domestic violence and how to be part of the solution. In its second year, the Paint 757 Purple campaign grew to include a new element that was carried into our third year, where we literally painted 757 purple thanks to beautiful awareness murals in in Virginia Beach.

Our goal for the ‘Paint 757 Purple’ campaign is twofold: to raise funds for the programs that help victims of violence break free from their abusers for good, and continue to raise awareness throughout our community to ensure that people know where to turn if themselves or a loved one are ever in need of help.
