Give Comfort and Hope to Child Abuse Victims

SPECIAL NEEDS FOR ABUSE VICTIMS

Want to help serve vulnerable children during pandemic?

Through our partnerships with regional transitional living facilities housing those affected by domestic violence, sexual abuse, and homelessness, we are responding to some of the most pressing needs of displaced children during this pandemic. In addition to providing care packages, summer camp backpacks, and birthday blessings, we are collecting the following items:

  • Throw blankets for children (victims of sexual abuse)
  • Throw blankets for women and teens
  • Pillow cases
  • New underwear (all sizes)
  • Hair brushes (variety for different types of hair)
  • Any hygiene items and toiletries
  • Board games/puzzles for families cooped up together
  • Arts and crafts for children
  • Toys for birthdays
  • Snacks (individually wrapped)
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Disposable gloves
  • Disinfectant

Regarding blankets for kids, a sexual assault nurse examiner at one of the agencies we partner with has said:

“I do sexual assault exams on children that have been sexually abused. I get some donations for soft blankets for the kids to hold or cover up with during my exams. I am in desperate need of blankets for these children. I let them pick out their own blanket and they get so excited about such a small gift, it makes my heart happy too. If you could find small throw blankets (they like the real soft ones) I would greatly appreciate it… Thank you for everything you do for our community.”
