NHS Volunteer Opportunities
Short-term/one-time activities are posted in the NHS Schoology Group and through the NHS Remind due to the immediacy of the event.In The CommunityFemme Flow - We started this organization because many homeless women don’t have access to feminine hygiene products, and therefore they cannot properly care for themselves. Because talking about the menstrual cycle is clouded with such a stigma, people are uncomfortable donating feminine hygiene products to homeless shelters, or even forget about it completely! This is why it is crucial to raise awareness for this issue. Our Clean Kits include pads, tampons, plastic bags, soap, as well as hand cloths. As of now, we have created over 2500 kits in the past four years!
