Club will give hygiene products to homeless

Ella Beiser, Reporter

Power Over Period is a new club whose members are working to provide feminine hygiene products to women who do not have access to them and to break the stigma around menstrual health.

The club meets Wednesdays during lunch in C119 and both girls and boys are welcome to participate.

Through a bake sale in April, club members raised more than $200 toward the eventual purchase of feminine hygiene products for women in homeless shelters.

Annie Billings started this club after recognizing that while the school had many feminine empowerment clubs, this subsection was missing.

Annie said one of the main reasons that this club is important is to remove a negative connotation around health.
