Did you know girls in many third world countries miss a week of school each month because they lack access to feminine hygiene items? You can help women and girls feel cared for, seen, and loved by donating feminine products (girls underwear: size 10-14, travel size bar of soap, wash cloth) for Orphan Grain Train.
 
These products will be used to put together feminine kits. Every Kit has the potential to create an experience that can shift a girl’s future.
