The Central Alabama Community Foundation and the River Region United Way has awarded Women in Training, Inc. with a $2,500 grant from the Community COVID-19 United Relief Fund. The grant will purchase monthly hygiene distribution to 100 homeless or transient girls.

Thirteen-year-old Evi from the Netherlands, along with her parents, garnered support from friends and businesses in their country to support Women in Training (WIT) by providing cash and donations of sanitary pads and other hygiene items to support poor girls and young women suffering from #periodpoverty. The supplies will be used during our #COVID10Relief efforts.

Thank you to Neolaia Skincare for making a generous donation to Women in Training. We appreciate your commitment to supporting our youth!

Mrs. Belinda Gaines from Mississippi is the newest angel to join the Women in Training (WIT) family of supporters. Mrs. Gaines shipped a large box full of menstrual hygiene products and underwear for WIT to distribute to underserved young women during #COVID19. Thank you, Mrs. Gaines! Pandemics don’t stop periods.

Thank you, Ms. Mackey, for listening to that still voice, and loving the many underserved girls in our community.

It’s natural for close friends and family members to support one’s cause; that’s just what we do. When a complete stranger lends a helping hand; however, it touches a special place in my heart. This lovely lady, Robin D. Mackey, reached out to us, and simply asked: “How can I help your girls further their mission?” 

 

We told her about the special need during the #COVID19 quarantine to help homeless girls and young women, and  those living in foster care facilities and public housing, with menstrual products and hygiene items. Guess what? Ms. Mackey was at our doorstep the following week with a box full of beautiful Melba Masks, lovingly made by Melba Richardson; packs of sanitary pads; and bottles of Dove unscented body wash. Not only that, she is garnering her friends to provide monetary and in-kind donations to Women In Training. 

Thank you, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, for your generous contribution to Women in Training.

 

At the 2020 Delta Days at the Alabama State Capitol, Deltas from around the state came to Montgomery to advocate for legislation. They also made monetary and in-kind donations of menstrual hygiene products to support WIT's program to alleviate period poverty among girls and young women living in poverty. Special thanks to the brilliant Kynesha Brown, for spearheading the campaign. We received the funds just in time to support our COVID-19 relief efforts!

Prudential Spirit of Community Award has donated $1,000 to Brooke Bennett, co-founder of Women in Training (WIT) and the 2020 Prudential Alabama Middle School honoree.

Prudential will also present WIT with a check for $2,500 for our COVID-19 relief program
