The YWGC is collecting and providing feminine products to county residents in need - for their inaugural year philanthropic project from February - March 2020.
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.
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.

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.
