This is an economic and equity issue that hinders the efforts of many women to provide for themselves and their families. It encumbers young women from getting to school and keeps them from their education—an education that will help them escape poverty. Project Period is a way to step up as a whole community—men and women both—to address this pressing problem.Donations of sanitary napkins of all sizes, tampons, and reusable menstrual cups will be accepted at the YWCA's Frances McClelland Community Center, 525 N. Bonita Ave., starting tomorrow. Other locations will be announced in January. The launch event is taking place tomorrow at the YWCA as well, from 10 to 10:30 a.m.
