When a survivor leaves a violent relationship, they often walk out with nothing more than the clothes on their back. Some clients come to STAND! having just fled their abuser, leaving behind their homes, their cars, their clothes and everything else they own. That's why STAND!'s Emergency Response Team provides Emergency Kits to survivors and their children when they take them to a safe place. These kits have everything a survivor needs to comfortably get through the night and begin the process of rebuilding the next morning, including a toothbrush, toothpaste, a clean change of clothes and a meal.
The Mt. Diablo Business Women are hosting a donation drive to collect personal care items for STAND!'s Emergency Kits. Brand new, unopened items will be assembled into kits that will be ready for the team as the need arises.Their goal is to assemble 50 bags and they need your help! To get involved, please visit mtdiablobusinesswomen.org or call 707-567-5016.
STAND! thanks the Mt. Diablo Business Women for their advocacy and generosity. Together, we can Save Lives, Rebuild Families and Change the Future.
