HOPE KIT DRIVE
RISE UP KC IS HOSTING A DRIVE FOR ESSENTIAL ITEMS NEEDED BY LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS TO GIVE SURVIVORS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THESE ITEMS ARE VITAL TO THEIR RESCUE AND RECOVERY.
You can help us by
1. donating supplies online
2. follow us on social media & share our posts!
We have partnered with 4 local non-profits
THAT HELP LOCAL SURVIVORS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING EVERY DAY –
RIGHT HERE IN KANSAS CITY.
“These kits would be a wonderful help to our organization in providing necessary hygiene [items] to the women we serve. They also make wonderful outreach bags to women still on the streets.”
“The survivor typically does not have anything with her, especially at the hospital ER. She feels loved and cared about when we bring that bag. Also, it breaks the ice between her and our advocate, which opens communication between them. This allows us to provide her with better services.”
“These kits will support survivor leaders in conducting outreach to share with individuals who are being commercially sexually exploited – that they are seen, they are valued, and there are supports to empower them to exit, to heal, and to thrive!”
“Providing for the survivor’s basic needs like this just overwhelms them with gratitude. Particularly when it’s coming from all different directions. It really motivates them to press on in good ways!”
