A KC nonprofit continued its tradition of giving in 2017 by donating tens of thousands of feminine hygiene products to domestic violence shelters.
Giving Hope & Help, which was founded in 2013, also donated $10,000 worth of products to the shelters. It donated about 40,000 sanitary napkins, tampons and toiletries to shelters in Kansas City and surrounding states.
Donations are still being accepted through Dec. 31.
“However, it’s never to late to donate as Giving Hope & Help collects year round,” said founder Jessica L. McClellan, adding that drop sites for items can be found at the nonprofit’s website.
The nonprofit also collects items to be donated to local cancer patients through its “LOVE Bags 4 Cancer” program. Since 2015, it has donated care packages to more than 200 cancer patients.
