Lots of teens worry about getting their periods at school. Some younger teens, even pre-teens, may experience their very first period while in class, away from home. To help alleviate period-related stress for teens in the Colchester community, Colchester is Kind has organized Project Period.
Through donations from community members, Colchester is Kind creates period kits for students at William J. Johnston Middle School and Bacon Academy. The kits will be available in the nurses offices and are free of charge.
The kits include items such as pads, panty liners, tampons, and wipes. Additionally, we collect items such as deodorant for youth of all genders.
Young people shouldn’t be anxious about getting a surprise period while at school. And youth that come from families that cannot afford an adequate supply of these items deserve access to basic necessities.
If you are a student at WJJMS or Bacon Academy and would like to help with this project, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would LOVE to get you involved.
