OUR MISSION 

We desire that everyone in the adult entertainment industry know they are purposed, loved and valued. We exist to offer free to low-cost support and services to industry women, men and their families. 

 
 

aboutus

POLE Gems is a faith-based 501(c)3 non-profit in Salem, Oregon and an official member of the Strip Church Network. Each month, ladies-only volunteer group gather together with a car full of gifts to hand out to both women and men who work in our local strip clubs. We give gifts because we believe it is through a gift that we show love and value to our family and friends. We give gifts because God has lavished His grace and love (as His gift) on us (Eph 1:7-8).

 

We’re all about creating relationships! Our hope is that each gift a lady or man receives in the clubs we visit brings a smile to their face and shows them they are cared for. We also place a card in each bag to let them know they can reach out to us if they need something.
