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 2022 recipient of JLGNF’s Period Pantry donations will be Helping Mamas. Located in Norcross, Georgia, Helping Mamas is committed to keeping girls in school and women in the workforce. They partner with school nurses to provide period packs to distribute to girls in need. Additionally, they work with 150 partner agencies to ensure girls and women have access to period supplies.
How can you help?
- Purchase products for the JLGNF Period Pantry.
- Make a donation to all League initiatives.
- Help spread the word to friends, family, and co-workers to raise awareness about period poverty.
Thank you for your support in helping end period poverty.
