Safe Places is lending a hand to flood victims of North Carolina.
Safe Places is lending a hand to flood victims of North Carolina. Mount Vernon, Virginia resident Margaret Shipp, a volunteer with BRAWS (Bringing Resources to Aid Women’s Shelters), stopped by the headquarters of Safe Places Friday morning to collect 2,340 disposable diapers on her way to distribute them along with cases of women’s hygiene items to flood victims in North Carolina.
Shipp was on her way to the small town of Salemburg where she would be delivering them to the Salemburg Christian Food Bank which serves an average of more than 500 families per month, and is in desperate need of diapers for mothers with infants and toddlers.
“This is great!” exclaimed Shipp as Frank filled her vehicle up to the brim with diapers donated to BRAWS by Safe Places.
