Volunteers served in a variety of roles, both indoors and outdoors on the BDVP’s 40-acre farm and the shelter facility.

Afterwards, the UK staff returned to campus for lunch. During lunch, Corissa Phillips, director of communication and development for the BDVP, gave a talk about the organization’s work in 17 counties in central Kentucky to meet the needs of victims of intimate partner abuse.
