March is Women's History Month – commemorating and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. For the past five years, I celebrate women's month by helping women in need - #theHomelessperiod is an annual drive to collect sanitary napkins, tampons, and personal wipes. In 2020 we closed the doors of LiVay Sweet Shop, went curbside, and only collecting 35 packs of personal care items. They were all donated to duCret School of Art, with the need growing as we still press to overcome the heartache of Covid 19; this year, the 5th annual "#theHomelessperiod" was a huge success total collection was over 1000 packs. Thank you all for your generous donations.
