Thank you for your Crimson Kit donations!12.15.2017
Thanks to all of you who donated items for Clinic Sofia’s Crimson Kit Collection over the past month. Through your donations, we were able to assemble 235 kits, which equates to almost enough supplies to support 20 women through their periods for a whole year! "When you become bogged down with all the badness in the world, it’s a wonderful feeling to try to focus on the good,” said Dr. Erin Stevens. “Thanks to everyone who gave products and for those who came to Clinic Sofia to help assemble the kits. I am so proud to be part of such a caring community." She adds the Crimson Kits were recently delivered to People Serving People and Tubman to share with women experiencing homelessness or those displaced from their homes due to domestic violence. “We hope to make this an annual tradition at Clinic Sofia, making it bigger and better each year!"

Help Create Crimson Kits for Area Women in Need10.26.2017
All women know that having a period can be unpleasant. Imagine having to experience that time of the month without reliable access to pads and tampons, clean underwear or safe bathrooms – resources many of us take for granted. That is unfortunately the reality for women experiencing homelessness or who are displaced from their homes due to domestic violence. During the month of Thanksgiving, Clinic Sofia is hoping that those of us who have a lot to be thankful for can come together to give to the women who need it most. Learn more here.
