According to Time, women who receive low incomes or are homeless often don’t have the money to afford access to proper feminine hygiene products such as tampons, pads or sanitizing wipes. This can lead to a vast range health issues from vaginal infections to cervical cancer. To help the women of St. Louis avoid these health problems, the KHS Coalition, a gender equality club, has organized a feminine hygiene product drive. The drive will last from Oct. 18 to Nov. 17 and all proceeds will go to Gateway 180, a homeless service center and shelter, and Kirkcare, a non-profit that helps families in need. Students and faculty are encouraged to donate products and money during second hour. The second period that donates the most will be awarded donuts courtesy of the Coalition.
