LEWISBURG – In an effort to prevent sex trafficking, a local shop is collecting your unwanted underwear and sending it to third world countries.
You read correctly, The Little Black Box in Lewisburg is asking for bra donations to help women who have been enslaved by human traffickers.
Organizers are asking you to bring a gently used bra to their store through the end of July to help the non-profit group “Free the Girls.”
The organization helps women in Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, and El Salvador.
The drive here locally has already exceeded expectations, says owner Ginger Steele,
“I was hoping to get 100 and we have exceeded that goal, so I'm going to need a couple big boxes which is great.”
You need to hurry, the drive ends July 31, and customers who donate will receive a 20 percent discount.
