MILL HALL — The need for food and clothing is a constant for many in our community. Now Full Armor Wellness in Mill Hall is participating in a Personal Care and Hygiene Drive throughout the month of March.

“I am grateful to Full Armor Wellness for participating in this drive,” said Liz Terwilliger. “Lack of access to personal care items can prevent someone from finding work, it can impact self-esteem and lead to bullying for children and teens.”

The drive, co-hosted by Liz Terwilliger for Congress and the Lycoming County Libertarian Committee was planned specifically for March, Women’s History Month.

“We have a government that has the audacity to tax feminine hygiene products as a luxury item, making it even more difficult for women to afford these essential products. The Lycoming County Libertarian Committee is doing our part to not only help those women who have trouble coming by their basic needs, but also to raise awareness for the need and end centuries of making the undeniable fact of the female period a social unmentionable,” said Luke Moyer, chair of the Lycoming County Libertarian Committee.

Members of the community can stop at Full Armor Wellness to drop off items such as maxi-pads, tampons, shampoo, soap, ethnic hair products, razors, hairbrushes, combs and other personal care or hygiene products in the bin placed by the Lycoming County Libertarian Committee. Items collected during this drive will be delivered to the YWCA in Williamsport to be divided between the Hut of Hope and Liberty House.
