DAVIDSON, N.C. - The Davidson Police Department reported that a group called HOPE for Domestic Violence is in town to conduct a clothes and household items drive, according to a news release from the department.

They are distributing orange bags to homes in the area.

They claim to collect items to be used in "two recovery homes" for victims of domestic violence.

The Police Department first learned of this group last year, when they distributed pink bags in Davidson.

"The bottom line is that none of our victim advocates and/or law enforcement groups are aware of where their "two recovery homes" are located," said Davidson Police Chief Jeanne Miller in a news release. "I would recommend not donating to this group. If you are interested in making a donation, please contact me and we will put you in direct contact with groups that we know are directly servicing Mecklenburg County victims."

For more information, please contact Miller at 704-892-5131 or jmiller@townofdavidson.org
