DONation from the National association of professional women (Midlothian, VA Chapter)
If you are a young girl in the Richmond, Virginia area and do not know where your next meal will come from, how do you handle feminine hygiene needs?.......You probably don't know......food comes first for you and your family. The truth is that girls in this situation often wear hygiene products longer than they should, risking personal health concerns and sometimes creating social issues for themselves.
Sylvia's Sisters works through two local organizations to distribute disposable sanitary pads to local school girls in need. Communities in Schools (CIS) Richmond and Communities in Schools Chesterfield identify where the needs are located. Sylvia's Sisters collects disposable pads and fills the need through the CIS organizations. For more information, click on these links to CIS.
