WE ARE SO EXCITED TO INTRODUCE OUR FIRST CHAPTER OUTSIDE OF ATLANTA!
Athens Chapter is operated by Andi, who is the Chief Campus Editor of The Black Sheep UGA. Over the summer, Andi contacted us asking how she could host a period products drive in her area. Her concern was though we've been consistently helping homeless in Atlanta, our hands hadn't reached outside of the perimeter. She wanted to help us provide period care for those in Athens as well. We absolutely agreed, and welcomed the new venture!
Andi, with the help of her friend Abigail, collected 77 boxes total which would equal close to 2,000 period products. With some research they found Bigger Vision Of Athens, a winter shelter housing 4-5 women a night. The shelter Director, Andrew, let them know that Bigger Vision works very closely with The Homeless Day Services Center of Athens, and frequently share donations.
We Greatly encourage anyone outside of Atlanta who wants to open a Peach Coven chapter to contact us and we'll help you get started! With time, our hope is to have a chapter serving the homeless with periods all across Georgia.
