The WGC’s Feminine Hygiene Product Drive continues to bring in needed supplies for women and girls in Howard County. Thank you to everyone who has donated money or products at locations around Howard County.
Many thanks to our partners atWKD Karate 4 Girls for collecting and donating products and our partners at Vectorworks for collecting and donating money and products! Vectorworks has not only collected products, but their employees raised over $700, which was matched by the company! Many thanks as well to the Howard County Library System, which has bins in all branches, as well as our partners at Bra-La-La and The 3rd that are collecting products regularly - we appreciate you!
We appreciate our donors, and all of our partners! WGC donors, volunteers, and interns, Luci Denmeade, Adora Brown, and Bryn Schwartz have been picking up and dropping off carloads full of products, thank you!
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.
You can donate above and/or bring products to drop in marked boxes at six Howard County Library System branches around the county. 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. Thank you!
