Maybe you've noticed a donation box in the library lobby. YSM students involved with AMWA (American Medical Women's Association) & ACOG (American College of Obstetrician's & Gynecologists) District I are gathering supplies for 2 organizations that provide supplies for survivors of domestic violence and other underserved women: The Women's Health Resource Center (NH) and The Women's Center of Rhode Island.

The Women's Center of RI would like:
- Toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc)
- Women's and infant's clothing & supplies (socks, winter boots, baby lotion)
- Cleaning supplies (dish soap, sponges, laundry detergent)
- Used cell phones to refurbish and give to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The supply drive runs this week, Monday through Friday.
