February is here! With it normally comes our annual Galentine’s Day celebration, but in adjusting our plans with a mind to safety and distance, a new program has been born: a Galentine’s bra (and underwear and menstrual hygiene product) drive!
All month long, we are running a drive to collect bras, underwear, and menstrual hygiene products for “I Support the Girls“ an incredible non-profit that began right here in Silver Spring. ISG collects and distributes these essential items, allowing women and folx experiencing homelessness, impoverishment, or distress to stand tall with dignity.
Where to go? Stop by any one of the amazing woman-owned local partners below with your donations (and then of course you should congratulate yourself with some yummy treats!)
