Eighth Annual Delicates Drive
Eighth Annual Delicates Drive:
January 11, 2020 through February 16, 2020
The Junior League of Portland encourages you to join us in supporting survivors of human trafficking through our Delicates Drive. Over the course of one month, we are working towards a goal of collecting at least 10,000 new undergarments of any kind (bras, panties, boxers, camisoles, tank tops, socks), any size, and for any gender.
The Delicates Drive kicked off on Saturday, January 11, 2020 and focuses on undergarments because individuals fleeing these environments are often asked to surrender these items as evidence and may not have the resources to purchase new ones. The Junior League of Portland will distribute donations to a selection of partner organizations which provide immediate and long-term care, such as Rose Haven, New Avenues for Youth, A Village for One, and Rahab’s Sisters.
Wish lists with suggested garments or items for purchase are available through Amazon and Target. Hampers to collect garments are distributed throughout Portland in various storefronts and other host organizations, which you can see on our interactive map below.
For any additional questions or inquiries please reach out to StopHumanTrafficking@jlpdx.org.
