New Beginnings Asks For Your Help With “Laundry Of Love”
New Beginnings Sexual Assault Support Services is asking for your help.
New Beginnings offers confidential crisis and long-term therapy services to sexual assault survivors of all ages, as well as their family and friends. All services are provided free of charge. They are based in Owensboro with offices in Owensboro and Henderson serving Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union and Webster counties in Kentucky.
"Laundry of Love" is a great way for you to help out recent victims.
Many times, assault victims are asked to give their clothing to the police. Police often use these clothing items in the criminal investigation. A paper gown is then given to the victim. The "Laundry of Love" Assault Survivor Kit allows the patient to have a change of clothing and a few toiletry items while at the hospital.
Each "Laundry of Love" kit contains:
1 pair of shorts/elastic pants
1 pair of underwear
1 sports bra (females)
1 pair of flip-flops/rubber sandals
You can purchase one or a few items off of this list or entire kit. If you have questions, call 270-926-7273 and New Beginnings will pick up the items from you. You can also bring the items to the New Beginnings office at 1716 Scherm Road in Owensboro.
