VOA Texas Mardi Bras Dignity Dash

February 16 @ 12:00 am - February 28 @ 11:30 pm

The Volunteers of America Texas Mardi Bras Dignity Dash provides restoration for women in our re-entry programs through the gift of dignity items. Our re-entry from prison and jail programs benefit over 750 women each year. When women are released from prison, they often leave without personal dignity items that help them transition to life outside of the prison walls.

Proceeds from the race, and any additional donations of funds, will support the purchase of needed dignity items, including: bras, underwear, pads, tampons, gift cards, bus passes and more. These items make a significant difference in a woman’s confidence and ability to harness her power and reclaim her life after incarceration.

WATCH THIS to see what your support means to Lisa

Additional donations of these specific items can be sent to: Volunteers of America Texas, 300 East Midway Dr. Euless, TX 76039. Not a runner, that’s okay! Consider hosting a Mardi Bras drive among friends, family, or coworkers! Contact Adam Hengeveld for more information: adamh@voatx.org.
