We work closely with other organizations like school clubs and girl/boy scout troops who do packing for us to prepare items for donation and distribution.

Local Impact

"For clients who are not working and have family members sick, this is great help for them right now. The community relies on Rise and I Support the Girls for these items. I have a single mom with 5 girls, she can count on coming in and getting the items they need."
Nico
Case manager at NJ RISE based in Hightstown, NJ
"We are so very grateful for the donations we receive from I Support the Girls - Central/South New Jersey. They go above and beyond to make sure our pantry is stocked with women's hygiene products. On behalf of our clients, thank you!!!!"

"HiTOPS is so thankful for the generous support of I Support The Girls! We were one of the Vangina stops last fall and we received personal care products as well as period underwear, no fly boxers, Tomboy X compression tops, and more! The generous donations from I Support The Girls helped to stock “The Closet,” a free resource HiTOPS provides for youth to come and select the clothing, accessories and toiletries that trans and nonbinary youth need - in a space that is safe and shame-free. HiTOPS was thrilled to be a Vangina destination and to receive these wonderful items!"
