JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) – Area domestic violence shelters get some much needed help for victims fleeing abusive relationships.

The Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence received a check Wednesday for $20,000.00 from Heather's T.R.E.E.

It is a non-profit organization named in honor of Heather Spencer who was a victim of domestic violence.

Spencer was killed by her boyfriend George Bell III on Sept. 11, 2007.

Heather's T.R.E.E raised the money through the Heather Spencer Soul Shine Memorial Concert and a duathalon.

The funds will go directly to 11 shelters to purchase clothing and other items needed by victims who leave abusive living conditions.
