More than a dozen participants came out to Brock’s Days for Girls event held as part of Alternative Reading Week. The team worked to create hygiene kits to send to young women around the world to help them continue their educational journey.
More than a dozen Brock students (including Brock Music student Brielle Kaminsky, pictured front row, second from left) employees and community partners came together on Feb. 21 to support Days for Girls, an initiative introduced to the University community through Alternative Reading Week programming.
Held at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in downtown St. Catharines, the event had participants sewing sustainable menstrual hygiene kits to be sent to young women and girls around the world. Days for Girls, a global movement, prepares and distributes the kits to females who would otherwise miss school during their monthly periods.
Volunteers at the Brock event spent the day cutting, ironing, sewing, surging and marking. Brock’s next Days for Girls event will be held Friday, March 15. Details will be available in the near future on ExperienceBU.
