The Children’s Advocacy Center of Jackson County is holding its annual fundraiser to help abused children online from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday.

For 15 years, the center’s Cherish the Child Luncheon fundraisers have raised money to help Jackson County children heal from the trauma of child abuse.

This year, the fundraiser won’t be held in-person because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The center will live stream the event on Facebook and YouTube.

To donate, text CHERISH2021 to 44-321.

People with questions about how to view the event or donate can contact Bobby Abernathy at 541-494-1771 or babernathy@cacjc.org.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Jackson County in Medford is a nonprofit community organization which provides a home-like environment where child victims can disclose abuse to law enforcement and child protective workers in privacy and safety. Kids can receive services in one child-friendly location.

By redesigning the process with the needs of children in mind, the center reduces the trauma of abuse and provides coordinated support services for child abuse victims to begin the healing process, staff members said.
