Pyjamas and underwear needed for transition house in Hope

Women fleeing violence can find comfort in fresh new clothing

When a woman arrives at the Jean Scott Transition House in Hope, she needs to feel as comfortable as possible.

To help them settle in and sleep well, a clothing drive specifically for new underwear and pyjamas is running through the month of March. UFV and the Hope and Area Transition Society (HATS) will be collection/drop off points for the donations.

All donations must be new, and will be given to women transitioning in crisis.

Drop off points are in Hope at 400 Park St. (HATS Main Office) or 1250 7th Ave (UFV Hope Campus).

For more information email anna@hopetransition.org or michelle.vandepol@ufv.ca.
