$10 Donation to Help Distribute Hygiene Kits
The Issue: Obstacles to Reintegration After Incarceration
On October 1, 2011, California enacted a law designed to reduce overcrowding and inadequate health care in prisons. Realignment, as the plan is known, will transfer many people to county facilities and return others to the community. Yet for those returning to society, limited support services exist to ease their transition. Formerly incarcerated people often have difficulty attaining work and housing, creating a cycle of recidivism as they return to crime to survive or cope.
The Campaign: Distributing Hygiene Kits to Women
If 65 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then A New Way of Life Reentry Project can distribute hygiene kits to 26 formerly incarcerated women at its residence. These women often arrive at A New Way of Life with no personal possessions, and the hygiene kits can provide a degree of comfort while meeting basic necessities. Each additional $50 raised will fund a Kid Kare kit, which provides living essentials for babies born to women living at the residence or children reunited with their mothers.
100% of donations go directly to A New Way of Life Reentry Project. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign.
