Happy July, everyone!
We hope you and your loved ones are staying cool and healthy this summer!
From all of us here at Fulfilling Destiny, we want to thank you for your support. This blog highlights all the community care during the past month. Be sure to read through to find out about all the current hiring opportunities we have. We are so excited to share all the great news and service from our amazing Fulfilling Destiny family. We would not be able to make a difference without your help and support!
June was a fantastic month for Fulfilling Destiny! We love seeing people come together to uplift our community. Check out all of the amazing work by our staff and volunteers!
First, we would like to express our greatest thanks to Mrs. Robin Rembaugh-Record and Dr. Rachel Record. They invested their time to assemble Dignity Bags that will directly support menstruators in need! Thank you Mrs. Rembaugh-Record and Dr. Record for always supporting our mission from day one. We appreciate you!
Check out @thedaffronclan and their friends! They hosted their own Packing Party and assembled a total of 200 Dignity Bags! These bags will be an incredible relief to many menstruators throughout San Diego. Thank you so much for your time, effort, and support!
Fulfilling Destiny is so grateful for all the help and support we have received! Thank you to everyone who hosted a Packing Party, fundraiser, and donation drive this month.
We would like to give a huge thank you to SD She Fest for hosting a Donation Drive on our behalf! All of June, people were able to donate period products to the She Fest bin at Santos Coffee!
She Fest (@sdshefest) is a volunteer committee of LGBTQ+ women and non-binary folks centering the diverse experiences of LGBTQ+ women and people who feel at home with “she.” Their work fosters community connections for San Diego’s LGBTQ+ women and intentional allies. They combat homophobia, transphobia, and the patriarchy; and, highlight and celebrate the spectrum of “she.”
We are immensely grateful to be able to work with other passionate organizations to empower our community together! Let us know if you or your organization would like to partner with us!
Eya, Bridget, and Nicole worked on organizing our storage unit with our order from Aunt Flow and many community donations! Thank you all for sharing your time and passions with us!
We have received many of the donations via our P.O. BOX 178824 San Diego, CA 92177. We would love your help in packing these donations!
As some of our staff and volunteers transition to new roles and new places, we need more help! If you would like to assist with distributions to our partners, please contact us! You can read more about our various San Diego Distribution Partners here!
