The YWGC is collecting and providing feminine products to county residents in need - for their inaugural year philanthropic project.
Did you know ...
This is a need, that is easily and often overlooked. Please help and bring some dignity back to our women and girls in this effort. Please donate feminine hygiene products today or give today - monetary donations collected will be used to purchase items.
At this time, YWGC will be collecting products at the following sites:
Howard County Businesses! Please let us know if you would be willing to serve as a collection site - thank you!
YWGC participants were honored to meet this week with mentor Nette Stokes, Founder of JustLiving Advocacy, Inc., who has also spearheaded collection efforts for years and who has just donated supplies to the YWGC. "The YWGC is doing great things and I am very proud of them" said Ms. Stokes.
Sponsored by the Women's Giving Circle of Howard County, YWGC is comprised of girls in 7th - 12th grade who share the same passion: helping women and girls in need. Members of the YWGC raise money and make grants to nonprofit organizations in Howard County whose missions support women and girls.
“We are so proud of these young philanthropists who are committing themselves to learn more about the community and raising money to fund programs that are meaningful to them” said Barb Van Winkle, WGC Advisory Board Chair.
Please help spread the word! You can follow the Collection drive Instagram page @YWGCdrive, and spread the word to friends.
We look forward to the collective impact we will make together in Howard County, and specifically in the lives of hundreds of women and girls.
