The BT GirlUp Club ran a successful pad/tampon donation collection in the girls' restroom. All products collected went to the Center For Hope and Safety, a women's shelter in Rochelle Park, NJ.  About 25 million women in the U. S are living in poverty and government aid from food stamps does not cover pads or tampons. Many impoverished and homeless women do not have the funds to purchase these VERY NECESSARY items and resort to unhygienic methods during their periods.
