Titans, YWCA to help domestic violence victims

Posted: Updated: Sep 20, 2013 03:29 AM

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans want fans coming to their home opener to help domestic violence victims through the YWCA by bringing some clothes for women and children of all ages.

Volunteers will be outside the stadium collecting new pajamas, socks and other underwear Sunday before the Titans kick off against the Chargers.

The clothing is needed for women and children staying at the YWCA's Weaver Domestic Violence Center after escaping domestic violence.

The YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee runs the largest domestic violence shelter in Tennessee.

More than 350 women and children spent more than 16,000 nights at the shelter last year.

Donations will be accepted starting two hours before kickoff and into the first quarter.
