Girls Inc. of Monroe County’s Period Project is an initiative aimed at addressing period poverty and promoting menstrual health awareness. The project provides free menstrual products to individuals and organizations in need, ensuring that no one misses out on education or opportunities due to a lack of access to essential hygiene products. By destigmatizing periods and advocating for equitable access to menstrual products, Girls Inc. of Monroe County is fostering a supportive and inclusive community for all!


Girls Inc. has taken on the task of creating awareness about period poverty in Monroe County. We want our community to become educated about the topic and to stand behind all menstruators. With this initiative, we have had an overwhelmingly positive response from various community organizations including Bloomington Rotary Clubs, Bloomington Chamber of Commerce, Monroe County United Ministries, IU Women and Business, IU Omega Phi Beta Sorority, and Scout Troop 1148. All have banned together so we can create this much-needed awareness!

If you are an organization (or know of one) that could benefit from donated supplies, please fill out this form!
