Tampons and Tamales: NM Affiliate Service Project
New Mexico is a vast, rural state, rich in culture and enchanting landscape. However, many New Mexicans struggle with poverty and violence, and have limited resources. Please join the New Mexico Affiliate of the American College of Nurse-Midwives to gather supplies at the Albuquerque Convention Center for our Tampons and Tamales Project. Supplies needed are tampons, pads, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, facial tissue, toilet paper, socks, soap, and laundry detergent. They will be distributed to organizations across New Mexico that directly help women, teenagers, and families in need, including:
Blankets and baby hats donated by attendees as in meetings past, will be shared with The Northern Navajo Medical Center at Shiprock and the less advantaged clients of the San Juan Regional Hospital Midwifery Practice, both in Farmington, NM.
