Learn About The Service Project at General Synod 34.

In the United States, some people cannot afford menstrual hygiene products such as pads, tampons, and other items that promote healthy practices. This inability to purchase hygiene products is known as period poverty, affecting over 22 million individuals.
Church World Service (CWS), a UCC partner, introduced Period Packs (Menstrual Hygiene Kit) to help individuals living in period poverty. The kit provides several products that promote cleanliness and health during a menstrual cycle.
Delegates and guests to General Synod are invited to participate in assembling 1,000 CWS Period Packs (Menstrual Hygiene Kits) as a service project. If you would like to help with purchasing supplies for this service project, please consider making a donation by July 4, 2023:
