Sedgwick County Zoo collecting donations to help human trafficking survivors

WICHITA, Kan. (RELEASE) The Sedgwick County Zoo has partnered with ICT SOS to collect donations for Fresh Start Bags to benefit survivors of human trafficking.

Fresh Start Bags provide survivors with basic necessities such as clothing, hygiene, and comfort items.

ICT SOS says these items should be purchased new to show the people receiving them that they are worth new, nice things after experiencing trauma.

The Zoo’s goal is to provide ICT SOS with at least five bags between now and the end of August.

Individual items or completed Fresh Start Bags may be dropped off at the Sedgwick County Zoo’s Administration, Education, or Admissions offices through Aug. 31.
