One Less Worry Tote Project Benefits Victims of Domestic Violence
New Hope for Women recently worked with One Less Worry to provide totes filled with personal care items for victims of domestic violence. The Tote Project resulted in donations of over $1,000 to our agency, money that will be well spent on much-needed items for those who choose to flee dangerous circumstances.
One Less Worry (www.onelessworry.me) provides essential grooming products to 23 Knox County non-profits. Items they reliably distribute include pads, tampons, bladder pads, toilet paper, toothpaste, and soap. For the last six Decembers, OLW has donated totes filled with grooming products to New Hope for Women in addition to providing grooming products to them monthly.
New Hope for Women recognizes that choosing to leave a situation of domestic violence is a planful process. Advocates work carefully with clients by providing resources, assisting victims in accessing personal supports and by empowering clients to determine what will work best for them. We invite anyone and everyone to contact our 24/7 helpline as needed. Services are free and confidential. An advocate is always available to speak to those in difficult circumstances and to assist concerned others. New Hope for Women offices can be reached at (207) 594.2128 or at P.O. Box A, Rockland, Maine 04841. Our 24/7 helpline is available at 1.800.522.3304.
