In collaboration with Princess Anne Main Street we are a vendor for school based teenagers who are not able to afford feminine hygine products. The "Period Project" exists to provide sanitary products to youth in the Somerset County area. Alongside the delivery of products, we are able to help educate youth on the importance and correct uses.
Affordability, access, and the outdated stigma associated with menstruation all contribute to period poverty - across the U.S. and locally. People living in small, rural, communities of color are disproportionately impacted. This issue negatively impacts health, school attendance, and self-esteem.
Community donations of new, unopened products, including pads and tampons, were needed to assist over 100 local girls.
We are thankful for all the donations and support we have received.
