The following is from the founders of Girls Helping Girls. Period.:
Calling all men and boys!
They are your sisters, your daughters, your mothers and friends. Girls and women all across our communities are struggling to make ends meet. And one of the burdens on them is not having the means to buy the feminine hygiene products they need. As a result they miss school and work. And all because they don’t have basic necessities. Boys, these girls need your support.
Girls Helping Girls. Period. is a family-run organization in South Orange that collects donations and offers a years’ supply of products to the women and girls it helps. They generally collect products and monetary donations at parties and fun events they host.
Dinner parties, Oscar-viewing parties, block parties, exercise class… guests come and have fun and drop off a few boxes of products or a check to help the organization meet its goals. And they are looking for a few brave men to step up and help, to take the lead and host an event.
GHGP will happily help you plan your event and will collect all the products you bring in and get them to the people who need them. All you have to do is organize something fun, ask participants to bring donations and reap the rewards of being a vocal supporter of girls and women.
