The Global Women of Highland Hills are partnering with the Macon Periods Easier Project to help young girls in need throughout our Macon Community. The mission of Macon Periods Easier is to raise awareness of period poverty in Macon-Bibb County and to help provide local students in need and the homeless community with free access to feminine products.
Women and girls in low-income settings are often forced to prioritize the little financial resources they have to provide for these basic necessities. School nurses in our local middle and high schools encounter 8 to 10 girls each day who come into their offices for assistance. There is no budget for these supplies, and nurses often pay for these items out of their own pockets.
Our Global Women would like your assistance in collecting feminine hygiene products. Collection baskets have been placed in the main women’s restrooms. You can donate your products there or leave them in Ruth’s office. We will be collecting these items through June 16.
