Delicates Drive at Industrial Barre Supports Victims of Sex Trafficking
1911 NE Broadway, 971-407-3411 or www.industrialbarre.com
The Junior League of Portland is hosting their Third Annual Delicates Drive and Industrial Barre is participating! They are collecting NEW undergarments for survivors of human trafficking. Often times victims' undergarments are taken as evidence when they are first rescued and new bras and underwear are among the first gestures of kindness a survivor may receive.

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. Organizations receiving these donations may include Janus Youth, SARC, and Hope82. You can help us make an impact in several ways. Donations of new undergarments, retail gift cards (eg Fred Meyer, Target, McDonalds, or Subway), and TriMet bus passes will be accepted at Industrial Barre until February 11, 2015. Over the past two years, the Delicates Drive has collected approximately 2,750 bras and underwear and over $1100.00 worth of gift cards! Underneath it all we are all the same. For more information contact: stophumantrafficking@juniorleagueofportland.org
