January 11th was Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Once again Marylhurst is joining forces with the Junior League of Portland to collect new underwear and bras for girls who have been rescued from human trafficking.
We invite you to contribute the cause by dropping off new underpants and/or new bras at the donation bins on campus. One bin is located just inside the door of Clark Commons; the second is located in the foyer of Marian Hall, near the Great Room.
The donations are then given to Janus Youth and SARC (Sexual Abuse Resource Center) two local agencies with ties to Marylhurst — so know you’ll be helping girls right here in the metro area.
All sizes of undergarments are needed. If you’d rather you can purchase a gift card (from Fred Meyer or Target) and it will be used to purchase underwear for the girls.
The drive continues until Monday, February 10th.
