• Through its Assault Survivor Kits program, the chapter provides clothing and personal care items to individuals who are survivors of abuse and sexual assault when their clothing has been retained by police for evidence.
• Bear Hugs provides teddy bears to local organizations to comfort neglected, abused or traumatized children.
