New P.J. and Underwear Clothing Drive will Benefit Domestic Violence Victims
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans and YWCA are asking fans to donate new underwear or pajamas for women or children who are victims of domestic violence at Sunday's home opener vs. the San Diego Chargers at LP Field.
Volunteers wearing pajamas will be stationed next to big blue bins at seven charity drive location points surrounding LP Field from 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
Volunteers will be collecting PJs, socks, bras and underwear for women and children who have fled violent homes. Donations are needed for women and children of all ages.
For 115 years, the YWCA has helped women, girls and families in Nashville and Middle Tennessee build safer, more self-sufficient lives. In addition to operating the largest domestic violence shelter in Tennessee and a 24-hour a day crisis and information line, the YWCA offers free GED® education classes and mentors girls in several Metro Nashville elementary and middle schools.
The YWCA exists to educate, encourage and break down barriers that perpetuate racism, violence and hopelessness. For more information, visit www.ywcanashville.com.
