Imagine you are a seventh grade girl in foster care. Life is all sorts of awkward. For many local girls like this, some days are worse than awkward. For many girls in foster care or unstable family situations suddenly finding yourself in school, with your period, and WITHOUT supplies is an unfortunately regular occasion.
Planned Parenthood workers operating in local schools noted that many girls were relying on office staff for monthly supplies having little to no regular access through home. Generous office workers have been buying supplies out of their own money.
We think we can do better.
That’s where On the Spot comes in.
We are organizing a fundraiser to help purchase supplies for local schools to hand out to girls who find themselves unsupplied and ‘on the spot.’
10 or $5 and a box of menstrual supplies*
Menstrual pads preferred but tampons will be accepted.
DJ Mary Mack, Kellee Maize, Drink specials, Silent Auction, 50/50 Raffle
All proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood to supply school office workers with supplies to give to local girls.
