CEDAR RAPIDS — Together We Achieve is having a feminine hygiene product drive through Feb. 28. Donations may be dropped off or shipped to 1150 27th Ave. SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404.
Together We Achieve is hosting the drive to have products available at its resource center and combat some of the statistics below:
• One third of people have struggled to buy period products during the pandemic;
• The SNAP & WIC program, which helps provide healthy food to women and children, does not cover access to hygiene items like period products;
• Currently, 30 states tax menstrual hygiene products as luxury items;
• More than four in five students in the U.S. have either missed class time or know someone who has missed class time because they did not have access to period products.
