  2. You are invited to participate in the first- ever USA Drive (Underwear, Socks and Accessories) that will run the entire month of April. All items will be donated to the Humboldt County District Attorney Victim Witness Program.  For reasons of safety, many families are forced to flee their homes with only the clothing on their backs.  The items collected will be distributed discreetly to the victims to protect the identity of the clients.  All sizes are needed: newborn to adult.  Donation/Collection bins will be located in the main entrance by the office.  If you have any questions or need more information please contact Lexi Miranda at nmiranda@co.humboldt.ca.us.
