The Junior League of Greenwich New Members invite the community to support their Women’s Empowerment Project.
The goal of this initiative is to prepare 105 “toiletry totes” to help combat “period poverty” and provide basic living essentials to local teen girls in need.
Their community partner is Neighbor to Neighbor, a local nonprofit organization, that seeks to improve the lives of residents throughout the Greenwich area. Neighbor to Neighbor will distribute the totes.
There are two ways the community can support this initiative. First, people can drop off the following essentials at any drop off location (listed below).
- Body lotions
- Soap Bars
Drop Off Locations (hours of operation may vary):
- Greenwich Junior League, 231 E. Putnam Ave, Greenwich, CT, 06830
- Club Sweat, 1345 E Putnam Ave, 2nd Floor, Old Greenwich, CT 06870
