Girls Inc. of the Valley recently launched a new initiative called Project Red. The mission of the project is to provide girls in western Mass with essential menstrual hygiene products.  

Girls Inc. Found that many girls relied on school and after-school programs for free period products. With schools closed due to COVID-19, it has been challenging for those that need these supplies to access them. 

High school student Maya Senquiz has been a part of Girls Inc. For the past four years. Maya joined Zydalis Bauer about Project Red and how Girls Inc. Has helped her personally.
