Davidson police are warning residents of a charity scam.

Police said a group called “HOPE for Domestic Violence” is back in town to conduct a drive for clothing and household items.

The group is distributing orange bags to homes and claims to collect items for “two recovery homes” for victims of domestic violence, Davidson Police Chief Jeanne Miller said.

“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,” Miller said. “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.”

Miller can be reached at 704-892-5131 or
