On Thursday, March 7, The Nu Theta Chi Sorority hosted the Menstrual Relief Program in the atrium of the Miron Student Center (MSC) from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event allowed attendees to donate pads, tampons, and other feminine products to those in need. All donations were proceeded to the Sierra House, a nonprofit organization.

Yvonne Hu, a Junior majoring in Marketing from China expands on the Sierra House mission.

“Sierra House is a non-profit organization to protect homeless women or those who have little income and children. The mission of this is that this is a very serious problem in our society, homeless women cannot afford expensive tampons and pads during their periods so we try to spread awareness and give back to society,” said Hu.

With Women’s History Month taking place in March, Sheyla Farfan, a junior majoring in Public Health, from Lakewood New Jersey, explains how this event is impactful as it is taking place during Women’s History Month.

“ This event is very impactful because it raises awareness of women who lack menstrual products and we’re able to give back to them and have them worry less about what they need,” said Farfan.

Celina Luna, a junior majoring in speech-language-hearing sciences, from North Bergen New Jersey, explains how non-female people can be enlightened on this topic.

“ I believe it is important because it spreading awareness of something that impacts everybody, we all have amazing women in our lives, and we should know how to help them, there are alot of women out there who are not fortunate enough to have access to these products, so it is a great way for everyone to have knowledge on this topic,” said Luna.

This event embodies the fact that all women should be supported all over the world, people have an opportunity to learn about the Menstrual cycle and see how they can donate to those in need of feminine products.
