A hearty thank you goes out to all who helped with the drive. Please know that you have made a huge difference in a survivor’s life! Especially helpful were our friends in the community who allowed hampers on site. A special thanks to Barre 3 in the Pearl for hosting a special donation based class, with all donations benefitting the drive.
Why have a Delicates Drive?
Often times, the survivors’ undergarments are taken as evidence when they are first rescued. The local organizations who provide immediate and long term care do not have the capability to supply survivors of human trafficking with these essential items. Survivors also have a need for gift cards to places like Target, Subway, McDonalds, etc.
What organizations benefit from the Drive?
There are several organizations helping survivors of human trafficking in the Portland, OR area. Organizations receiving donations from our drive may include Janus Youth, SARC, and Hope82, depending on need.
How can I help?
You can help us make an impact in several ways. If you are interested in hosting a hamper for the 2017 drive at your place of business, church, community center, etc. please email firstname.lastname@example.org. As the next drive nears, there will be several other ways to help our success.
Over the past four years, the Delicates Drive collected approximately 3,500 bras and underwear and over $1800.00 worth of gift cards! We are excited to build upon that in 2017.
Underneath it all we are all the same.
