Your donation will go to purchase one of these items, which are requested frequently by advocates and police officers, and will directly help survivors
Food Gift Cards (e.g. Burgerville, McDonalds, Starbucks): Victims are often starving, even though they may have $1,000 in their pockets. The officers and advocates know that providing a meal at an initial meeting is an immediate way to make a connection.
Clothing Gift Cards (e.g. Target, Fred Meyer): Providing the means for survivors to purchase their own clothing helps them to re-establish control over their lives, control which had been taken from them by their traffickers.
PDX Opportunities Fund: Cash donations accepted to cover specific needs of survivors not available to advocates from other resources (e.g. cap & gown fees, after school sports & activities, field trips).
Blanket/ Lap Pad Project: Cash donations accepted to cover cost of supplies (fabric, pellets, fiberfill, etc.).
If you are interested in sponsoring a collection through an organization or group with which you are affiliated, starting sewing group for the blanket project or arranging for a speaker, please contact us.
