Junior League of Cobb-Marietta to Collect Donations for It’s A Girl Thing! Through April
An online fundraiser that started in March as a way for the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta to help meet an urgent need in the community by supporting women and girls who are struggling to find feminine hygiene products due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will continue through the end of April.
The Junior League of Cobb-Marietta (JLCM) wrapped up March with the inaugural It’s A Girl Thing! Day and a 72-hour online campaign to help collect period products and collections for those in need. At the time, the nonprofit collected nearly 14,000 feminine hygiene products and more than $1,500 in donations for this great cause in Cobb County.
“We are thrilled with the community’s outpouring of support for the women and girls in our area,” said Katie Stieber, President of Junior League of Cobb-Marietta. “We received so many products and collections from donors who live all across the country, but the need didn’t end when collections stopped. There are still so many females in our community who need this continued support, so we are turning back to you for help.”
Beginning on Monday, April 13, JLCM will re-ignite the It’s A Girl Thing! online campaign, requesting contributions be made in dollar amounts.
“The products have become very limited online, so we are encouraging you to donate through the JLCM website so we can work with a vendor to purchase even more products,” explains Stieber. “Our goal for 2020 is to collect and distribute more than 50,000 products, but we can’t meet that goal without our Cobb community!”
Financial contributions can be made by clicking here. Funds will directly benefit 100% of the purchase of feminine hygiene products, with plans to deliver products to nonprofits and schools throughout Cobb.
