On Wednesday, people were invited to donate boxes of things like tampons, pads, liners, and individually-wrapped hygiene wipes.
“When women and girls don’t have access to these products, they’re forced to either use things to makeshift these products or they stay out of sports, they miss schools,” said Sharron Champion, the co-founder of the Homeless Period Project. “Think of all the more women and girls we could help if we’re not having to pay taxes on these products.”
I am proud to support this important cause. The Packing Party for the Homeless Period Project was a great event!
