Each April for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Victim Service Center solicits contributions from the community on behalf of the clients we serve who have been victims of sexual assault.
The UnderAWARE Underwear Drive is a clothing donation and fund-giving campaign to raise awareness of the prevalence of sexual violence and the promotion of a community free of violence against women and men. Victims of sexual violence have their clothing taken as evidence during the forensic investigation. The Victim Service Center provides replacement clothing for them and advocacy services as part of our sexual assault services.
This year the needed clothing items for our clients include:
If you are interested in hosting a clothing drive at your business, organization, or community group, give us a call at (407) 254-9415. Individual donations (NEW ITEMS ONLY) can be dropped off at our office at 2111 E Michigan Street, Suite 210, Orlando, FL 32806. Monetary gifts are also welcomed and will go toward providing victim services (make checks payable to the Victim Service Center).
In April 2012, the Victim Service Center collected over 10,000 items to benefit our survivors.
