Every other day a young lady may visit my office feeling embarrassed or discomfort as a result of needing hygiene products. The reasons may vary from, "I forgot" to "we don't have the money this week". As the School Counselor and a trusted adult in the building girls may need sanitary pads, body wash, wipes, and/or deodorant. In order to maintain a safe, nurturing, and trusting environment it is important to have the bare necessities available to students in dire need; as majority of our students come from low socioeconomic households. Maintaining cleanliness and hygiene is an important part of confidence for students in middle school grades and one in three girls have missed school or left school early as a result of being teased for hygiene or not having products readily available.
