Our packaging party celebrating the start of the new school year was a success! Thank you to everyone who donated, showed up and/or participated in the event! At the end of the party, we had packaged a total of 334 bags of feminine products, far exceeding our initial goal of 250! We couldn’t have accomplished that much without everyone’s help.
The packaging party was held this last Saturday, the 7th of September. Around 30 volunteers arrived at First Presbyterian Church of Fenton to help with packaging, stapling, stickering and loading the bags; each of which contain enough feminine products to support a woman for one month’s cycle.
We are thrilled by the success of the Back to School Packaging Party! Keep your eye out for a post listing where we will donate these bags to and be sure to look out for the date of our next Packaging Party (TBD)! We look forward to seeing many of you there!
On Tuesday August 27, we went to the North End Soup Kitchen to pass out products during dinner! We gave out over 100 bags of one month’s supply of feminine products.
Having the opportunity to meet the women we serve is one of the most special and rewarding things we do at Faith in Femininity. Every person we meet is always willing to share a grateful smile or a sweet conversation with us. What a humbling, heartwarming experience!
We are so excited to announce that we will be hosting a back-to-school packaging party on Saturday, September 7th at 2pm. We will be meeting at Fenton First Presbyterian Church. Our goal this time is to package 250 bags, so bring a friend and a helping hand!
