Hestia Grant provides feminine care products
Everyone needs food to survive. But feminine hygiene products are also a necessity that women need. Those necessities are expensive, and women can’t go about their daily lives without them. “We don’t want anyone to have to choose between buying food and feminine care products, or stay home from a job, doctor’s appointment, or school because they lack these necessities,” said Joanne Park-Foley, a Good Neighbors Food Pantry volunteer. The pantry has received donations of products in the past, but hoped to offer more. Hestia Women’s Giving Circle has made that possible through a grant to the pantry. Feminine care products of all kinds are now given every week to women and girls who need them. The mission of Hestia Women’s Giving Circle is to promote economic self-sufficiency and well-being for women and girls.
