To honor the International Day of the Girl on October 11, The Girls School of Austin held a Personal Care Supply Drive benefitting women and girls in the Austin Area. Students, faculty, and staff donated baby supplies, sanitary products and hair care during this one-day drive.
Most of the products collected went to Posada Esperanza a sister shelter to Casa Marianella for women and children serving displaced immigrants escaping from violence. The GSA’s 8th grade is partnered with Posada Esperanza for a year-long service-learning project and they delivered the supplies during their monthly volunteer visit. Remaining supplies were donated to the SAFE Alliance.
