Girls Helping Girls. Period Partners with IFPO
One in four women has struggled to purchase period products in the past year due to lack of income.
One in four low-income women reports having to use a substitute, like toilet paper or a sock.
One in five low-income women reports missing work or school due to lack of proper menstrual supplies.
More than one-third of low-income women has had to wear a period product for longer than its recommended use. These actions are unsafe and can lead to dangerous infections.
The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges is pleased to announce a formal partnership with Girls Helping Girls. Period. , an organization that has offered menstrual products to our clients in the past. Under this new arrangement GHGP has committed to financial support of a program that will offer IFPO clients feminine hygiene products on a monthly basis, ensuring that none ever has to go without these basic necessities. IFPO is participating in Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s Period Initiative and is receiving feminine napkins for a portion of our clients. With this major support from GHGP, all of our clients will receive feminine napkins and we will be able to treat each of our clients with dignity and respect. We are grateful to GHGP and CFB for enabling us to be able to offer these essential products.
