Girls in Gis are holding its first donation drive to help those in need. Thanks to the support of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu community in Texas, the Girls in Gis Wish List Donation Drive will directly benefit the SafePlace shelter in Austin, Texas.
SafePlace Austin –– a resource for sexual assault and domestic violence survivors –– supports the needs of survivors through a 24-hour hotline, hospital accompaniment, shelter and counseling services. Programs are also available that educate, build awareness and teach clients about assessing resources. The organization also helps children of survivors.
The SafePlace shelter needs some of the most basic items that can make a big difference in helping women and families rebuild their lives. To help, the Girls in Gis Wish List Donation Drive will collect needed items and create awareness of the services and resources that SafePlace offers.
