Period Packing Party and Women’s Health Trivia May Social Meeting.
Thank you to all members who were able to attend! AAUW SEV partnered with Go With The Flow Arizona has provided schools in Tucson and Phoenix and neighboring areas with over 20,000 period packs- small bags that contain tampons, sanitary napkins, and panty liners.
When a student at a participating school needs menstrual supplies, they can approach various school staff to obtain a period pack, helping to ensure a continuous supply of menstrual hygiene products for students at no cost to the school.
Congrats to the Red Hot Sisters, Cathy and Karen, for taking top prize at the trivia game!
