Cassville community members Jamie Lee and Skyler Bowman identified a problem and decided to take action and help. This summer, these women worked with local students to compile bags filled with feminine hygiene products for young women at Cassville Intermediate, Middle and High Schools.
In addition to purchasing supplies, volunteers asked their Facebook friends and family to contribute to their cause and were able to gather enough products for over 100 bags for Cassville students and approximately 30 bags for students at Exeter School.
If a student needs a bag, they can ask any female teacher on campus. All female teaching staff have them available at all times.
If you are interested in helping Lee and other volunteers with this worthy project, find them on Facebook under the group name "Fighting the Scarlet Crusade."
CMS student, Kristen Stough, adopted this mission as her Family, Career and Community Leaders of America event last year and won a club medal.
