United Way of Lewis County's affinity group, Women United launched a new program, Supplies Period. Supplies Period is an effort to reduce the number of middle school girls who have to miss school due to period poverty. 20% of girls have to miss school due to their inability to obtain period supplies. United Way's Women United is helping middle schools in Lewis County provide period supplies for their students, helping to reduce the number of days girls have to miss school and miss out on education. For more information on Period Poverty visit, Home - Alliance for Period Supplies.
