We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe, healthy, and cool this summer!
We are beyond excited to share all the updates from our FD Family. Our amazing community continues to expand and unite in powerful ways. We are always stronger when we work together!
Here are some wonderful updates and shout-outs from our expanding Fulfilling Destiny Family:
First off, we should like to give a big thank you to Alpha Phi Omega (APO) at UC San Diego! Tina organized and picked up the products for the packing party held by APO. They have mini packing parties amongst their organization and they packed 480 Dignity Bags in total! Thank you all so much for supporting FD, we appreciate you!
And a shout out to Jan-Marini! Jan stopped by to pick up around 50 Dignity Bags for the Jags Food Pantry at Southwest College. We are happy to continue partnering with Jags Food Pantry in the future!
Dignity Bag Distributions:
Take a look at some pictures from our May and June distributions! Bridget distributed Dignity Bags toRachel’s Women’s Center, Victory Resource Center, Areta Crowell Wellness Receovery Center, and TAY Academy!
We are very thankful for everyone’s support in pushing our mission to end period poverty. We would not be able to provide free products within our communities without your help! Our Distribution Partners allow us to expand our support to menstruators all across San Diego and San Jose!
Please let us know if you are interested in assisting with Dignity Bag distributions or know a community center that may benefit from receiving Dignity Bags (San Diego or San Jose). We are always open to creating new partnerships throughout the community and would love to connect and serve more menstruators out there!
Feel free to direct message us on Instagram or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
We would like to highlight one of our recent graduates of the Fulfilling Destiny team. Congratulations Nicole!
She received her Masters Degree in Nonprofit Leadership and Management from University of San Diego (USD).
