Days for Girls
Members who enjoy sewing join together in the Days for Girls Activity Group, led by Jeanne Reese. Normally the group is active from January through June preparing menstrual health kits for girls and women around the world. In response to COVID-19, the group has also been mass producing cloth masks to help the community.
Days for Girls is an international nonprofit formed in response to the need for support for independence and education in countries where cultural norms restrict girls' attendance at school, or in extreme cases, their interaction with society, during their menstrual cycles.
The group sews kits that include washable and reusable sanitary supplies, underclothing, and educational materials about women's health. The international organization Days for Girls distributes the kits around the world and depends on volunteers to reach millions of girls and women.
The Philadelphia Inquirer featured Days for Girls and local volunteers (including our group) in a nice article January 2020:
