One of the best qualities about our rural communities is their ability to gather around us in times of great need. When our community reaches out to offer support, we don’t want to be scrambling for an answer!
Traditional donation lists for programs working with sexual assault and domestic violence survivors typically meet immediate crisis-based needs and often serve to generate items for a survivor to furnish a new home or while staying in shelter.

Our donation list for advocacy organizations includes items to explore healing for sexual violence survivors. This resources outlines comfort items, spiritual items, items to help reconnect to the body, and holistic approaches.
