Donate Now

In addition to monetary donations, we welcome donations of items for our Dignity Kits.

After the trauma of an assault, survivors must endure an invasive medical exam and hand over their clothing as evidence. What do they wear home from the hospital? It may be nothing more than a hospital gown. Donations of new clothing items give survivors the dignity of proper clothing in the aftermath of an assault. 

New items needed for women and men in a variety of sizes (ages 13+) include:

  • Solid crew-neck T-shirts
  • Sweat pants
  • Underwear 
  • Socks
  • Flip-flops / disposable slippers
  • Winter scarves, gloves, hats


  • Toothbrushes & toothpaste
  • Sanitary pads
  • Reusable grocery bags

To donate Dignity Kit items, contact Mary at 201-881-1750 or
