Often, victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault must turn over clothes to the hospital or law enforcement agency as part of the investigation into the incident. Katy Christian Ministries works closely with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and will give the scrubs to victims to wear following a hospital examination.
“I know when people come into the emergency center after a trauma situation, getting them into a clean pair of clothes can make a world of difference,” said Brooke Kenjura, RN Case Manager, Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. “We all have scrubs that are in good condition that no longer fit, or were used in a different job. So, I was happy to donate scrubs to such a worthy cause.”
In total, employees donated 102 sets of scrubs as well as 30 individual pieces.
