DescriptionProject Pixie was created in December 2015 with the goal of engaging the community to provide donations of feminine care products for underprivileged women and girls, ensuring that all women have access to clean periods regardless of financial circumstances. Our mission is to ensure that underprivileged girls and women have access to feminine care products and we do so by engaging in direct street outreach and through partnerships with organizations who also provide services for this demographic.While our goal is to eventually fill this gap in communities throughout the country, we are starting this initiative in my home town of Philadelphia, PA and my home for the last 10 years, Union County
