Ignacio, CO

Ignacio Middle and High Schools are located within the Southern Ute Indian Reservation, about 30 minutes southeast of Durango.  IMS Counselor Jessica Keitz reached out to us in March 2022 about supporting IMS menstruators with period supplies.  She told us that IMS students have been stocking IMS bathrooms with period supplies and hoped we could boost their inventory. We sent out pads, tampons and liners and, since there were no puberty books in the school library, we mailed out books, too, along with enough moon time bags for every menstruator. We are excited to be supporting this student-led initiative addressing period poverty and menstrual equity. IMS school bathrooms will continue to offer students toilet paper, soap, paper towels AND period supplies!

Shortly after our first shipment of supplies reached IMS, Ignacio High School counselor Alicia Reinhardt asked if we could support the 110 or so IHS menstruators. Shipments to IHS began in mid-April 2022.
