Because of our very generous and caring community, SHE COUNTS has been able to donate over 4100 personal care items to women in our communities to date! THANK YOU!
BUT. Our work isn’t done yet.
Every day, women across our county, our state, and our country face “period poverty” with issues like the “pink tax” and increasingly reduced access to free and affordable feminine hygiene products. What’s worse: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products!
As many as 1 in 5 American women are forced to use newspapers, socks, toilet paper, or plastic bags when they menstruate, which poses a serious health risk. And this isn’t just a problem in other places–it affects many women right here in our own communities.
We will continue to accept donations at our donation locations, or you can donate online at the link below. Without your generous support, our mission wouldn’t be successful, and so we thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!
