P&G, Walmart join in program to provide sanitary pads to US girls in athletic teams
CINCINNATI, OH, January 10, 2019-
Today, Always® and Walmart® in collaboration with America’s Promise Alliance – the nation’s largest organization dedicated to improving the lives of young people – launched their latest Live #LikeAGirl program to help girls grow in confidence and reach their full potential. A recent Always Confidence & Puberty Survey revealed that nearly 1 in 5 U.S. girls miss school because they do not have access to the period products they need. But it’s not just school they miss, it also means they miss out on activities they love, which can ultimately have a huge impact on their overall confidence. The program will provide girls’ teams across all 50 states with a year’s worth of pads to help them stay in the extracurricular activities that are crucial to their mental and emotional development.
The program was kicked off in Florida, where Always and Walmart recently worked with a local martial arts studio that serves girls in need.
