For Victims of Rape

The Milford Bank to Sponsor a Collection Drive for the Rape Crisis Center of Milford

"When a victim goes to the hospital after an assault, they can participate in an evidence collection procedure which requires them to leave their clothing. Victim Support Packages are brought by an advocate of the Rape Crisis Center so the victim can leave the hospital with dignity. 
This serves as a stepping stone to healthy recovery."
Items needed are:
  •  light weight pants
  • sweat pants
  • elastic-waist shorts
  • sweat shirts
  • t-shirts
  • white low cut socks
  •  underwear all in sizes, especially large and extra-large
  •  flip flops
  • comb/brush set
  • toothbrush/toothpaste set
  • water
  • Gatorade
  • individual tissue packs
  • mall hand sanitizer
  • individual snacks like granola bars or crackers. No nut products please.
