GETTING PADS AND TAMPONS TO SHADY VALLEY

Women of MC listened to women in the community and their concern about Shady Valley not having a store to buy feminine products for themselves and their families. WMC contacted the Shady Valley Country Store, and they now sell pads and tampons. Women do not have to go down the mountain or to Damascus to get these items!

MOBILE CLOTHING SUMMER GIVEAWAYS

We gave away over 12,000 pieces of clothing to women all across Johnson County. New clothes create confidence in women that is needed in an area that has limited places to buy clothes for job interviews, work, or social events. Free carepackages (soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, pads & tampons) were also given to every woman that got clothing.

WMC DONATED FREE PAD DISPENSERS AT JCHS & JCMS

Now, girls in high school and middle school can get pads for FREE in the bathroom instead of paying or going to a nurse or counselor. This saves girls from needing money or embarrassment. We are encouraging feminine product funding be added to the county budget to keep girls safe by having access to clean, new feminine products.

PAD AND TAMPON GIVE AWAY WITH FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH FOOD DISTRIBUTION

WMC teamed up with FCC's food distribution and offered pads and tampons to families who came to get boxes of free food. 
We also went to the homeless shelter in Carter County and stuffed their food boxes with feminine products.

THOUSANDS OF PERIODS SERVED SINCE MARCH 2020

Breaking stigma around periods and sex education are at the core of what we do. There are too many women in our area with the lack access and resources to live healthy, feminine lives. We provide support, awareness, and break social boundaries by starting important conversations with others in the community.
