This year, every school in Iron County School District will be offering free period products in girls’ bathrooms in compliance with recent legislation (H.B. 162).

We know that 4 out of 5 girls have missed class, or know someone who has, due to lack of access to period products. Providing these products will allow them to learn, play, and thrive without worry.
