San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) employees have
teamed up with North County Lifeline to help collected toiletries for local victims
of sex trafficking.
The effort is part of Project Life, an advocacy program that
works with girls who have been victims of sex trafficking to provide case
management and mental health services.
Needed items include: baby wipes, body wash, compact
mirrors, deodorant, face wash, feminine hygiene products, floss, hand
sanitizer, hair ties, lotion, moisturizer, mouthwash, lotion, Q-tips, razors,
shampoo, conditioner, shaving gel, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.
Items can be dropped off at the SDCOE main campus in the
cafeteria, Room 315 or Room 101. There are also drop-off points at Howard Pence Elementary School and Southwest Middle School in Southern San Diego, Twin Oaks High School in San Marcos, San Diego State University's Psychology Department, and the Boys and Girls Club in Encanto.
Donations will be picked up March 21.
If you have questions about the effort, you can call or
