Did you know approximately 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 4 women do not have access to feminine hygiene products due to poverty? The Junior League of Gwinnett and North Fulton Counties works to raise awareness of and address this important issue in our community through outreach, donation drives, and advocacy.
Each year, through our Period Pantry initiative, JLGNF collects period products (menstrual cups, tampons, pads, etc.) and delivers them to organizations who help women and girls in need.
The 2023 recipient of JLGNF’s Period Pantry donations was Phoenix High School in Lawrenceville. Located in Gwinnett County, Georgia, Phoenix High School is committed to keeping students focused on academics, accomodating class schedules for students who work, and offering childcare for student-parents who wish to attend class. Our period packs were delivered to the school nurse to distribute to girls in need.
How can you help?
- Purchase products for the JLGNF Period Pantry.
- Make a donation to all League initiatives.

Thank you for your support in helping end period poverty.
