Backpack and Underwear Drive
May/June 2014 (Even though the drive has technically finished - we are still collecting underwear at SVC indefinitely!) — Often, when a person receives an evidentiary exam after a sexual assault, their underwear is kept for evidence. SVC is partnering with Sexual Assault Resource Service to collect new underwear for patients of all genders so they may have a pair to wear home that feels right for them.
