Every Woman Project
#EveryWomanProject is an initiative taking place across Canada and North America to bring period care products to those in need. Our Chicago Chapter mantra is if you are in need, regardless of gender, we’re here for you. We meet monthly virtually or in-person to create period care packages for over 20 shelters, organizations, and schools. We also provide toiletries, clothing, and any donated supplies to aid them. Our project is a labor of love powered by so many who love to serve and share it with others! Visit Site
Service Audience: Gender neutral (shelters, schools, other)
Comer Campus Partnership: 5 years (2017)
Mantra: If in need, we're here for you
Focus: Custom Care Packages (Period, Tolietry, Nutrition/Recipes...)
Awards: Chicago Defender 2020 Community Hero
Each month, we pack custom bags for our members at shelters, organizations, and schools and provide bags for our volunteers to give to anyone in need in their communities. Every month we're blessed with donations and generous support from organizations near and far. We love our volunteers who come to serve, share encouraging words in our packages, and join together to give back to others.
Over our wonderful five-year partnership, GCYC Members have contributed to all aspects of our collective giving and learning project. We're excited to expand our participation with your youth and their families in your Health Pathway programming this year!
Invite and Hope
We invite the Comer Center Community to write encouraging notes with photos and selfie videos to share with families we help in shelters, organizations, and schools.
We hope you will host health and hygiene workshops during our community care drives on Comer Campus and during partner excursions, field trips, visits...
