Hi! Our names are Izzy Masias and Audrey Williams. We are 8th grade students at Rochester Middle School in Rochester, WA. We have an issue with a topic that not very many people are comfortable talking about. Periods. And everything that goes along with them. In our community, we have many low income families. Something as basic as monthly sanitary supplies can cause a strain on the budget. However, this is not just a low income issue. Many girls will start their period for the first time while they are at school. We want to eliminate the stress it may cause to our classmates if they are unprepared. With the assistance of our donors we plan to purchase all of the necessary supplies to keep the public restrooms stocked at our school. With the funds raised, we will create supply baskets that contain free products for anyone that needs them. In the baskets we will supply: tampons, pads, panty liners, wet wipes and even replacement underwear and leggings for the occasional accident. With your help it will be - No Problem. Period.
