One in five low-income women report a lack of access to period supplies (an estimated 100,000+ women and girls in Northeast Florida). This health and safety issue is linked to using substitute products (toilet tissue, socks, rags, etc.), stretching product usage, and missing work, school and similar events. Furthermore, menstrual products are not eligible for purchase in safety net programs such as SNAP (food stamps) and WIC.
Anyone who’s ever had a period knows, menstrual supplies are an absolute necessity. Renewing Dignity, in collaboration with partnering organizations, is dedicated to providing these essential period products to women and girls who can’t afford them.
LET’S END PERIOD POVERTY!
