RALEIGH, NC, February 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere, a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to decreasing the potential for violence in our schools and communities, has received funding to promote safer schools in 2014. McGlinchey Stafford, a corporate law firm with multiple offices nationwide, and Aeropostale, the popular youth clothing retailer with store locations across the country, both generously contributed to the national nonprofit. SAVE will utilize the additional funds to aid schools across the country in their efforts to reduce violence and promote safer school environments.
McGlinchey Stafford, which has offices in New York, Louisiana, Ohio, Texas, Florida, California and Mississippi, donated to SAVE as part of its annual holiday donation on behalf of its clients. The law firm recognized the donation in a digital holiday card, which can be viewed at: http://www.mcglincheyholiday.com/2013/index.html.
Aeropostale awarded SAVE with a $10,000 grant through its corporate foundation, Aero Gives. Aeropostale selected SAVE for this grant as part of its continued commitment to supporting organizations that directly benefit children and teens.
"We're so grateful to McGlinchey Stafford and Aeropostale for their support of SAVE and the work we do for students on a daily basis," said Carleen Wray, executive director of SAVE. "Providing the resources to help prevent violence is a collaborative effort and we couldn't do it without organizations like these. Their generous gifts will help us further SAVE's mission to make schools safer and violence-free."
In addition to the contributions from McGlinchey Stafford and Aeropostale, SAVE is also continuing to expand its efforts thanks to a substantial grant from The Allstate Foundation that is aimed at promoting teen safe driving activities and youth safety efforts. The grant has been awarded to 37 SAVE chapters in North Carolina and Mississippi to conduct safe driving campaigns.

About the National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere:
SAVE started at West Charlotte High School in Charlotte, N.C. in 1989 following the tragic death of a student who was trying to break up a fight at an off-campus party. Students met first to console each other, then as an organization to promote youth safety and to work together to prevent future incidents from occurring. SAVE provides education about the effects and consequences of violence and helps provide safe activities for students, parents and communities.
