Girls Helping Girls. Period.  Girls Helping Girls. Period.  is a volunteer effort started by two sisters from New Jersey.  Girls and women in communities all across the United States are missing school and work because they simply can't afford basic necessities like tampons and pads. Those items are not covered by food stamps and some families are forced to cut back or choose other critical purchases.     At Girls Helping Girls. Period. we believe feminine hygiene is a matter of basic health. And human dignity. We're dedicated to educating people on the need, and collecting/distributing products. We give our clients a full year's supply of products. It's so simple to help

Contact the Maplewood Health Department or Girls Helping Girls. Period. directly if you or someone you know would like to request assistance with feminine hygiene products.
