Women in crisis don’t have a lot of options. In order to escape their abusive relationship, many times they must leave with nothing but clothes on their back. Surfing Sisters is partnering with the Loudoun County, VA organization, Women Giving Back (WGB) to provide women rising from crisis a small part of what they need to gain back their dignity and begin their new life.

Through Amazon, Groupon, or a clothier of your choice, we are collecting NEW bras, underwear and hose from June 10-24. The items will be shipped or dropped off to Surfing Sisters member Tracy Bank for delivery in July to the newly opened Women Giving Back Clothing Center in Sterling, VA.

The undergarments will supplement the clothing that is given to clients of WGB to help start their new life—helping them to build their new work wardrobe, everyday clothing and boosting their self-esteem.

Our Amazon Wish List has sizes available to help you with your purchase there, or elsewhere. WGB has indidcated a need for larger and plus sizes.
