The Starke County Tri Kappa organization recently donated sweatshirts and sweatpants to the Emergency Department of Indiana University Health Starke Hospital.
The donations will be used by sexual assault victims.
Often times, clothing is taken from the victims of sexual assaults for evidence purposes for a police investigation and the victims are left without clothes to wear when released from the hospital. Nikkole Frazier, an ER nurse and sexual assault nursing examiner, usually helps police gather evidence and was happy to see the donation.
Sandy Hansen, a Community Board member of IU Health Starke Hospital and a member of the Tri Kappa organization made the presentation to the Emergency Room staff.
