Have you ever wondered how Helping Women Period gets products to those who need them? Meet one of our 70 charity partners, Redeemer United Methodist Church!
The relationship between Redeemer United Methodist Church and Helping Women Period is unique. Not only do they benefit from HWP, but HWP benefits from them! There are two groups at Redeemer who work with us.
Helping Hands is a group of eight women who dedicate their time to sewing ditty bags. Ditty bags are the handmade colorful bags that we fill with feminine hygiene products to give to homeless and low income women in order to carry these products discretely. Helping Hands meets twice a month and makes around thirty bags each time.
The Redeemer Food Pantry receives products from HWP and distributes them to Clinton County women and girls in need. Suzie Unruh, the coordinator of the food pantry, believes that providing pads and tampons is a blessing and gives women greater confidence to focus on their daily lives, their families and jobs. Offering feminine care products makes a huge impact since food stamps do not cover personal care products.
Thank you to Redeemer Food Pantry and the Helping Hands Group!
