Tampon and pads are a necessity and not a luxury for young ladies as they grow into womanhood. Many girls, as young as 11 are missing school in Shelby County because they do not have the proper ‘necessities’ but working together, we can help these girls get back in school with the confidence they need without being embarrassed.
MLGW and its Council of Administrative Professionals (COAP) are hosting a drive now thru Sept. 28 to collect such items for Shelby County Schools through the United Way.
Drop items in the COAP box at any MLGW Community office:
245 South Main Street
5131 Navy Road
2424 Summer Ave
2935 Lamar Ave
1111 E. Shelby Drive
