Angelica Sabol started this petition to President Ava Parker

There are over 40,000 students that attend Palm Beach State College, 58% of these students are females. Many of these students are facing financial difficulties and one of those financial difficulties is being able to afford menstrual products every month. Often times if a low income student or a student facing poverty cannot gain access to these products they will skip classes out of both shame and necessity. Making menstrual products available on campus for students will help to eliviate this problem. 

In order to fix this issue tampons and pads should be put into restrooms free of charge in order to eliminate any embarressment a student may face in havung to ask for free supplies. And other menstrual products should be made available in the panther closet such as dive cups or period panties. 

I myself have been a victim of poverty. I know what it is like to go without and having to make hard decisions on what is more of a necessity. The students on this campus should not have to face these types of decisions alone. We have the panther pantry that provides free food and the panther closet that provides free clothes we should have something that helps student who need access to a basic necessity such as menstrual products. Please help me in making this possible.
