Posted by corinashughes@gmail.com on April 8, 2022 at 2:50 PM


The “Bras from Bend Drive” is Back for the month of April!

Sponsored by Soroptimist International of Bend


April 2022: One bra – one woman from Central Oregon. Both make a difference to

one woman rescued from human trafficking halfway around the world. Your gently

used or new bra provides a woman rescued from sex trafficking the opportunity to

earn a living by selling used clothing and to create a better life for herself and her

family. It is that simple.

Please give support during the month of April and drop your bras in the Soroptimist of

Bend Bra Boxes at the following locations. In turn, they are sent to the non-profit,

Free the Girls (freethegirls.org) that ships them to Africa and Latin America.

Donations are always welcome to help defray the cost of shipping More details
