Clancy & Theys partners with Layers of Dignity to provide clothing for sexual assault survivors
Clancy & Theys is collecting new clothes for Layers of Dignity, a charity organized to support victims of sexual assault. They will be accepting donations at the Raleigh office through March 15th to help provide clothing for victims.
Layers of Dignity is a Raleigh-based charity that provides clothing and support to sexual assault survivors post-trauma in emergency departments and women’s advocacy centers. As victims of a crime, survivor’s clothes and shoes are often taken as evidence, leaving them with only paper hospital gowns to wear home.
Following a medical exam, victims of sexual assault are given a Layers of Dignity tote filled with new clothes, shoes and other essentials to wear home. Each bag also includes a letter written by a fellow survivor to help the victims know they are not alone.
You can contribute by bringing new clothing items to the Superintendent’s area at the Clancy & Theys headquarters in Raleigh. On March 20th at 5:00 p.m., the team is invited to participate in a packing party at WakeMed Andrews Conference Center, where they will pack totes filled with clothing and necessities for Layers of Dignity.
Layers of Dignity accepts the following items:
- Full-length leggings
- Long pants
- Long-sleeve cardigans
- Long-sleeve blouses
- Pull overs
- Warm socks
- Sports bras
Clany & Theys is participating in the Layers of Dignity drive in conjunction with Leadership Raleigh, Dewberry Engineering, WakeMed, Lung Cancer Initiative of NC, Empire Properties, and Local Government Federal Credit Union.
