“We have had no fundraising for our organization since it was founded in 2017, so we’re just trying to get out into the community and let them know that we’re here, and what we’re doing for the children of the community,” Dandino said.

The Unified Child Advocacy Network helps abused children by conducting their forensic interviews with the help of DCFS and law enforcement so that children don’t have to be repeatedly re-interviewed and forced to relive traumatic events, Dandino said. She added that the proceeds from this fundraiser could help the organization hire its own counselor.

“What we would really like to do is get a counselor on staff. It’s so hard to get kids into counseling, there’s four-to-six-week waits,” she said. “If we can raise enough money, we’d like to get a counselor on staff that can see these kids sooner.”

The Jerseyville Domino’s Pizza is located at 218 S. State Street and can be reached at (618) 498-2111, or you can use the Store Locator on dominos.com to search for the Jerseyville location.
