Newhouse Donation Dropoff May 11, 2015 23:01
This week, we visited Newhouse Domestic Violence Shelter in Kansas City, MO and donated 30 pairs of new, clean MADI undies. Yay!
The staff was so excited and welcoming of our team. They couldn't wait to gift these to the 30 ladies currently receiving services and seeking shelter and refuge at Newhouse. Community Engagement Coordinator, Kacee, gave us a tour of the facility and educated us on all of the wonderful resources Newhouse offers for abused women in the community. AMAZING things these ladies are doing for our Kansas City women :).
Fox4News KC filmed the drop-off - we are so grateful to them and other media outlets for joining us in spreading awareness about the need for underwear as well as domestic violence awareness to the community!
Newhouse CEO talked about how underwear and other personal items are so under-donated and it's nice to receive donations like this because they hardly ever receive new undergarments (and they can't receive them used.) A new pair underwear (a woman's most intimate article of clothing) has the power to make her feel comfortable, confident and clean.
Want to help us Make a Difference by donating underwear to women across the street or around the globe? Three ways you can help:
-Treat yourself with a couple of our super soft, sexy undies! For every pair you buy, we donate a pair to women in domestic violence shelters and rape clinics.
-Buy a gift card for a friend or family member. For every pair of MADI undies they use their gift card to purchase, we donate a pair to a woman in need
-Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a direct donation to MADI Apparel
