MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - 12-year-old twin girls in Montgomery decided to celebrate their birthday by launching a new campaign to make sure girls in the area have all the hygiene items they need.
Instead of throwing a party or asking for gifts, Brooke and Breanna Bennett asked for donations. They’ve been collecting things like shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, body washes, feminine hygiene products, even socks and underwear.
The girls are putting all of the items together in kits that will be distributed through a new non-profit called Women in Training, an organization that provides rites-of-passage training and outreach programs for girls and young women in middle and high school. The packages will be called WIT KITS.
