When clients go to Berks Women in Crisis, they usually don't have much more than the clothes on their backs.

"When they come, they are fleeing and they usually just grab a few of their things and they come with nothing," said Ineavelle Ruiz, the organization's residential director.

The organization gives residents the essentials in a welcome kit, but with its safe house constantly filling its 50-person capacity, officials are in dire need of supplies.

"Shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste. Items our residents need," said Ruiz.

The center also needs bedding, towels, clothes and diapers.

Officials usually ask for donations via email, but have recently took to Facebook to reach more people, since the need is increasing.

While Berks Women in Crisis is making a plea for supplies now, it said the need is great all year long.

"This is a constant, because we have people that are coming in, families that are coming in and also families that are exiting," said Ruiz. "So every day is a different day and the need is always going to be there. It's constant."

If you'd like to donate, you can drop off the supplies at the Berks Women in Crisis main office at 255 Chestnut Street in Reading.
