To assist Second Harvest with benefitting women in the big bend area, SouthWood Art of Living's HOA office is currently accepting feminine hygiene products through its donation drive.
The Galentines Day Donation Drive will be accepting donations until Feb. 17.
Corie Stegall, who volunteered to have a collection box in the community, said that rising costs of feminine products due to inflation have caused a serious need in our area. "One in four women or teenage girls cannot afford the products, so they're using socks and toilet paper and newspaper to get by, and with the increasing homelessness and poverty within our community locally, there's such a huge need," said Stegall.
Those interested in donating, are advised to drop off their donations at the SouthWood HOA Office, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
