AshaKiran Hosts Supply Campaign for Victims of Domestic Violence
With all of this shopping vacation going on, a lot of people are going EVERYTHING but on the other hand, many are going WITHOUT. AshaKiran aims to solve this problem.
HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – AshaKiran is hosting a holiday supplies drive. The association helps victims of human trafficking, sexual assault and domestic violence, especially within the foreign-born community.
These victims often leave dangerous situations, forcing them to turn to AshaKiran with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
Thus, this procurement campaign was put in place to ensure that these survivors have the appropriate winter gear and personal items during the holiday season.
The group currently only requests new and unused items, such as:
– Bathrobes and flip flops for men and women
– Winter items such as hats, gloves and scarves for men, women and children
– As well as pajamas for men, women and children
– Blankets, diapers, wipes and toys
The supply campaign will run from November 22 to December 20, 2021.

“You might know that you are shopping for things for your kids and that’s such a great thing for you to do, especially if you are shopping with your kids to tell them, hey, instead of ‘buy this toy for myself, why wouldn’t I pick a toy for someone who might really need it and who’s never had something like it, ”said Emily Griggs Howard, door- speech of awareness for AshaKiran.
