Survivor Needs:

Thanks to your great generosity, we have an abundance of supplies for survivors and have no room to store more at present. The only exceptions are:

  • Small tool bag filled with basic items needed for a household: (hammer, nails, screwdrivers, picture hangers, tape measure, small level)
  • Set of basic cleaning supplies for a home: (mop, bucket, broom, dustpan, rags, cleaning supply caddy…)
  • Vacuum- good quality, lightweight, bagless
  • Hair straighteners 
  • Cell phones with SIM cards
  • Kits for new rescues: WE HAVE ENOUGH AT PRESENT  Please use the drawstring bags noted- they really help with our limited storage space. Thanks! These small drawstring bags are ever so much more space efficient for our limited storage area. Bags are available on Amazon or we can provide if needed.
  • Reliable cars – only being able to live and get jobs with reasonable access to bus lines is quite limiting.
  • Gift cards for immediate survivor needs -   Walmart, restaurants, gas, Kroger, Visa, Mastercard   Note: Going to lunch with survivors during a day filled with appointments is an import part of relationship building and care. We’d love a wide variety of places all around the area! 

     Please note: We cannot accept  clothing donations except as specifically listed here
    Please do NOT bring the following (we have plenty for now and insufficient storage space for more.) shampoo, lotion, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hairbrushes

Sponsorships or items for :

  •  birthdays for our girls and women- it’s time to lavish them with love! : Sponsor a gift, restaurant meal, party supplies  (amounts can vary but generally about $100-$150) Donate as usual, select “Direct Aid to Victims” in category and shoot us a note at the same time, saying it is for a birthday girl (info@endslaverytn.org

    With gratitude from us and those we serve-

  • Food for survivors in emergent care. This can be a one time commitment or a great project for a small group to commit to once a month. We’d send a list of grocery items needed for a week or you could cook a meal- we’d share food likes/dislikes, allergies etc. for current residents. Or a combo of groceries and cooked food to freeze.  This need will begin late May or early June.
