“WIT is honored to host our inaugural Mother-Daughter Brunch to raise money for the fight against period poverty,” said Dr. LaToya Clark, M.D., Chairwoman and President of Women In Training, Inc. “Mothers, daughters, mother figures, mentors, mentees and, yes, even some men, will come together at this exciting and entertaining event to help us ensure that girls, young women and nonbinary youth have the products they need to live their lives to the fullest.”

One in four American girls and young women skip school or miss work because they cannot afford sanitary pads or tampons to stay healthy during their period. To alleviate period poverty, Women in Training, Inc. (WIT) provides monthly donations of WITKITS® – canvas bags full of menstrual, hygiene and dental products – to underserved girls, young women and gender expansive youth. WIT also provides educational information programs about menstruation for girls and publishes the brochure, The WIT Guide to the Menstrual Cycle.


Proceeds raised from the Second Annual WIT Mother-Daughter Brunch will support the WITKITS® Campaign to provide bags of menstrual and hygiene supplies each month to more than 600 families in need. WIT’s signature program is the WITKITS®​ ​Campaign to provide menstrual, hygiene and dental items to young, low-income people who menstruate.
