The Exchange Club- Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse will be hosting the 31st Annual Circles of Hope Telethon Sunday, August 10, 2014.
The theme this year is Somewhere there's a child- alone, afraid, abused.
The Carl Perkins Center has helped over 16,388 individuals and over 9,923 children.
85% of the cases at the Carl Perkin's Advocacy Center are child sexual abuse.
The goal this year is to bring in more than last year because the need for help has continued to grow.
The event will be broadcast live from the Carl Perkins Civic Center in Downtown Jackson on WBBJ ABC 7 from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.
