FEM Project is 100% volunteer-led and supported, they aim to give women menstrual supplies, essential necessities that are often overlooked and not covered by food stamps.
FEM Project is partnered with the Downtown Women's Center -- "the only organization in Los Angeles exclusively dedicated to addressing the needs of women overcoming poverty and homelessness in Skid Row."
We want all women to have hygienic and happy periods, homelessness is hard enough, so let's ease the burden of having a period while homeless. After each fitness event with Jet Sweat Dept, we will pack "menstrual kits" to drop off to homeless women in need. It is encouraged to bring tampons, pads, individual packs of midol, chocolates, etc to include in these personalized packages. About 10 tampons or pads will be included in each package.
