I Have Been There
Updated: Apr 17, 2019
A lot of the work that I've taken on has been from experience. I have been in a low-income household raising a child. We needed just the simple things of life, like security in knowing that we had basic needs. I don't do this work with a helicopter view as I have been where these women are when they come through the doors to get supplies from Erie County Alliance for Period Supplies.
I have rolled up paper towels and toilet paper in the bathroom of my job to make it through the day.
I have been unable to ensure adequate period need supplies for myself and watched other women go through the same struggles. This opportunity is a way to raise awareness while helping to address the need by helping women not have to deal with the experiences that I have journeyed through.
