SAVS – Sexual Assault Victim Services

Our Volunteers and advocates respond to approximately 80 hospital calls a year. At these calls SAVS provides a packet of information (printing), Sweats/t-shirts and socks and underwear along with a small stuffed animal and a blanket provided by a local nurse. Not every survivor needs all the items, but we must be prepared every time we get a call. In addition, advocates give out the packets when working with someone who didn’t go to the hospital but will benefit from the information.
Wish List:
  • Unmarked bags and/or backpacks for the volunteers to carry items in (we get 15-25 different volunteers throughout the year) we don’t usually give these away
  • Drawstring pants in basic colors -size med-large
  • Sweatshirts/t-shirts- size med-large (we use t-shirts and lighter weight pants in the summer)
  • Women’s underwear – sizes 6 and 8
  • Socks
  • Packets – cost approx. $4 each to produce
  • Stuffed animals (smallish, soft and cuddly, no seasonal)It costs $20-22 to fill a bag. As you can see this adds up.

Donations of supplies and dollars to fill the bags will allow us to continue this important resource to survivors of rape and other sexual assaults.

FAQs:

Q: Does Community Works accept in-kind gifts, gifts that are not cash, such as clothing, household items, or furniture?

Yes we accept new and gently used gifts of clothing and household goods to help our clients build new lives. Community Works also partners with Goodwill. Goodwill gives Community Works vouchers for our clients to go shopping for free!  In return we send all of our extra In-Kind contributions to Goodwill.

Q: Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes, your gift is tax deductible. You will receive a thank you letter for all donations listing our tax ID number for tax purposes. When you make an in-kind contribution be sure to ask for an in-kind contribution form. After filling out this form return it to the front desk a letter will be sent to you for your tax records.  If you don’t put a value on your donation it cannot be used as a tax deduction.

Q: Suppose I want to designate my gift to a particular program or service?

Unrestricted gifts allow Community Works maximum flexibility in allocating resources where they are most needed. These decisions are made by the senior executive staff and the Board of Directors. However, we are pleased to direct 100% of your gift to the particular program you wish to designate.
