TAMPA, Fla. — ABC Action News is Taking Action Against Domestic Violence for the month of October by highlighting people who have a positive impact on those in our community in domestic violence situations.

Connie Ashmore has volunteered with Sunrise of Pasco County for over 20 years.

Ashmore has held several different roles at the organization including serving as president from 2010-11, she worked on the board of directors, and most recently she has helped out at the shelter's thrift store.

"It’s an organization Sunrise of Pasco it’s very near and dear to my heart. I know people that have been in domestic violence situations," says Ashmore. "I just want to do what I can, do what moves me, and working with the thrift store and Sunrise of Pasco is it."
