COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – In support of Women’s History Month, state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, is partnering with Coordinated Youth and Human Services to collect feminine hygiene products to benefit local women in need.

“The individuals who work with Coordinated Youth and Human Services do incredible work in our community, and I hope that this supply drive will help address the needs of the women they serve,” said Stuart. “This drive will help give women essential products that they may not always have immediate access to, including tampons, pads and other much-needed items.”
