St. John's Social Justice & Outreach Committee is Supporting Victims of Human Trafficking in conjunction with The Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington (JLHB) and their Community Backpack Drive. From October 28 - November 25, the JLHB is spearheading a backpack drive to support survivors of human trafficking. We plan to have a donation box placed in the foyer by the Great Hall to collect items such as new pajamas, underwear, yoga pants and tops, and hygiene products. A more detailed list is shown in the poster. These items will be placed in backpacks, and then distributed by the Hamilton Anti-Human Trafficking Coalition.
Human Trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery and has become a major concern in the Hamilton/Burlington community and throughout Southwestern Ontario. Traffickers maintain control over their victims through manipulation, threats, and/or the abuse of trust and power. Victims may be trafficked by someone they know or in some cases, connection is made through social media with a gradual, well executed plan to distance the victim from family and friends. Many of these victims are held for years before escaping and once freed, often have nothing of their own. They would really welcome the gift of one of these backpacks.
The JLHB is seeking our help with either financial aid or specific donations of the items listed above. Their target goal is a minimum of 50 filled backpacks. Please can we help them reach that goal? Items can be dropped off at the office between 9 am and 4 pm (closed for lunch at 1 pm) by ringing the bell, and Carole will let you place the items in the bin. Financial donations can be made by writing a cheque payable to the JLHB Backpack Program or through Canada Helps.
With thanks, the Social Justice and Outreach Committee.
