The WGC’s Feminine Hygiene Product Drive continues to bring in needed supplies for women and girls in Howard County. You can support this effort in two ways:
Donate Products: We are collecting donated products on a regular basis and bringing them to the Community Action Council/Howard County Food Bank, Columbia Community Care, and other places to distribute to women and girls in our community.
Donate Money: We invite donations to the WGC that we will provide to our nonprofit partners so they can purchase products for their clients.
The WGC has chosen to continue our focus on this because it's a need that is easily and often overlooked.
Did you know ...
29% of girls miss school due to lack of supplies needed.
39% cannot provide period products for themselves.
Some are forced to use towels and plastic instead of proper supplies.
Thank you to everyone who donated money and/or products at locations around Howard County in 2022 and 2023. So far, we've been able to donate hundreds of pounds of products and over $4,000 dollars to WGC nonprofit partners to purchase products for their clients.
And, a big thanksto our WGC Student Interns Isabella Farro and Jess Ndiritu who are managing WGC's 2023 Feminine Hygiene Product Drive!
