STAC Participates in Days for Girls Project

St. Thomas Aquinas College and the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill will participate in the Days for Girls project. Days for Girls is a network of dedicated and passionate individuals working to ensure women and girls have the personal hygiene solutions they need to stay in school, pursue opportunity and succeed.

Volunteers for the project create and distribute quality, sustainable feminine hygiene kits and provide health education to women and girls around the globe who are in need, creating a more dignified, free and educated world.  Girls without access to sanitary supplies face days without leaving their homes for school or work.

“Days for Girls is empowering women around the world by providing health education and sustainable feminine hygiene products.  Students involved feel that they are really making a difference in another girl’s life,” said St. Thomas Aquinas College’s director of health services, Eileen Mastrovito.

Female volunteers are invited to help create kits on Tuesday, October 17, 2017, and/or November 14, 2017, at the Dominican Convent, 175 Route 340, Sparkill, NY, from 5:45 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  Community Service credit will be offered to all students who attend.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Eileen Mastrovito at 845-398-4242 or emastrov@stac.edu.
