Help the Homeless with Hygiene
One of our fundamental beliefs is reaching back into the community. In 2105, there were 565,000 homeless people, and women make up a little under 40% of that population. Homeless women face unique obstacles that men do not have to worry about. A while back, I saw a video about homeless women coping with their periods.
As a organization geared toward women, we know that feminine hygiene products are expensive. A woman should not have to choose between eating or feminine hygiene products.
Your money with be used towards purchasing pads, tampons, and wipes to be donated to passed out and donated to women’s shelters. Being homeless is already hard, I want to be able to give these women a little bit of comfort and dignity.
