Chivon Kloepfer of WLNS met with Lysne and Amy to learn more about the need for menstrual products in the community . View Chivon’s report below.
Do you recall what it was like to be 15 and start your period at school (or 12 for that matter)? Raising your hand in class, walking down the hallway, and totally forgetting what you were just learning?
HWP has launched its annual #GivingTuesday campaign, focused on raising funds to install 15 free vending machines in area schools. Thus, “15 for 15”.
Please consider donating what works for your budget, starting at $35.00. The link is below. For every $300 raised, we can purchase the dispenser and a semester worth of product. Follow our Facebook page to see your donations at work as they are installed throughout 2019.

Thanks to the incredible corporate program of Hospeco, Period Partner, our organization received a donation of 55 cases of product to benefit the people in our community. Period Partner provides countless non-profits, schools, and other organizations free product.
This donation included:
5 cases of tampons
10 cases of wipes
15 cases of liners
25 cases of pads
For our organization, that represents a savings of over $2000 that we can now spend reaching even more people who menstruate. Or, in more human terms, for every $2000 we spend, approximately 57 people who get a YEAR supply of products. You can see our story on their website.
