For those of you who do not know about Empower and the work they do, let me fill you in. Donations come from many places and in many forms. Often times, group donations come as clothing, shoes, toys, school supplies, and hygiene items. One item that is never donated to resource centers or students in need is feminine hygiene products such as pads and tampons. Students as young as 7 or 8 can need these products and need to have access to hygiene items in the same was that a kid may need a pair of socks or some extra school supplies. Empower raises money and awareness to provide students with the supplies they need in Harlan County. All donations stay in Harlan County and are distributed to Harlan County Schools.
That being said, come join us July 21st at the Harlan Farmers Market from 11-2 pm to raise money for Empower. All donations are accepted: pads, tampons, or cash. Buy a dessert as all dessert proceeds go to Empower on this day!
