Look at how easy it is to save lives!

“I have always believed that people want to help; they just need to know how.” founder of Control Alt Delete Laura Pahules

Someone you know is trying to figure out how to escape.

Control Alt Delete provides one time assistance in helping people escape domestic abuse. When a referral comes in from a victim advocate, prosecutor office or crisis response team we immediately work to find solutions that remove the barriers keeping those Survivors in unsafe situations. Since Control Alt Delete is 100% volunteer run $1 of every single dollar donated goes directly towards helping Survivors escape.

Let’s look at all the different and unique ways you can help:

  • Donation Drives
    • Hygiene items for BIN Bins
    • Safety Kit items
    • Fast Food gift cards
    • Sneakers
  • Wish Lists
  • Roundup App
  • Fry’s Community Rewards
  • Amazon Smile
  • AZ Tax Credit
  • Shop Raise App
  • every.org
  • $21.75 a month Saves Lives
  • “Change” Lives pocket change collection
  • Order a Control Alt Delete limited edition t-shirt
  • Hold a social media fundraiser
  • Send items you would like to donate from anywhere in the United States through Give Back Box

Donation Drives are a fun and engaging way to help Survivors of domestic violence. Control Alt Delete gives a BIN Bin (basic immediate need basket) full of hygiene items and essentials to every in-person escape allowing the Survivors dignity in not having to ask for necessities.

Hold a donation drive at your work, you school, your gym, your daycare, your neighborhood.

While BIN Bin items are necessities the Control Alt Delete Safety Kits provide much needed safety measures to Survivors escaping domestic violence. A donation drive for Safety Kit items goes a long way to helping Survivors heal and feel safe again.

Collect items that help Survivors feel safe again.

An ongoing need for Control Alt Delete are tennis shoes.

We need them in all sizes and any condition. There are surprising number of escapes where the Survivors are barefoot having fled with nothing but what they have on. We keep the new and like new sneakers to give out as escapes need them. Only sneakers please. The old worn out tennis shoes are recycled as a fundraiser that keeps them out of the landfill while helping people escape domestic violence.

We also collect fast food and grocery store gift cards to give out as Survivors escape.

Think of a child that has had their whole life turned upside down and a meal might be the only sense of normalcy or the Survivors that are escaping and have long distances to travel.  Both physical and electronic gift cards in $10 increments are perfect!

Grocery store assistance is the largest requested service for the senior citizens we help escape domestic violence.

BIN Bin items, Safety Kit items and gift cards can be found on many of the Control Alt Delete wish lists; another easy way to help.
