Hello everyone! Welcome to the Fulfilling Destiny blog!
Thank you for supporting our mission to support those experiencing homelessness to have their period with dignity.
This August at Fulfilling Destiny, we had various volunteer acts and even new volunteers to join the FD family! Just like the last few months, many of our regular events were postponed. Despite this, we have so many supportive individuals that continue to work hard to provide menstrual products to those who need it.
Eya, the founder of our organization, has been working diligently all summer handling Dignity Bag distribution in addition to taking summer classes. On August 3rd, Eya distributed 30 Dignity Bags to MJ Housing and Services.
In July, volunteers, Bridget and Miranda assembled Dignity Bags with their families. This August, Bridget delivered them to Home Start Inc.
Home Start Inc. is an incredible non-profit organization dedicated to helping children in abusive and risky situations find safety, which in turn has strengthened families and their larger communities. Read more about Home Start Inc. here.
We also had a recent donation of pads from Debbie! Thank you so much for your support! We are so appreciative for all of the hard work and support from our volunteers for assembling and delivering Dignity Bags! Having safe and socially-distant opportunities to give back to our community is something we are grateful for. Thank you to all of our volunteers for your dedication!
If you are interested in hosting your own packing party or delivering Dignity Bags, please contact: [email protected]
We also had a few more amazing Community Outreach interns join the Fulfilling Destiny team! Please welcome Monica Kerolos, Jas Ladao, and Gabby Fernandez.
