Today Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-21) joined David Morgan, President and CEO of TEAM, Inc. to present TEAM with donations collected over the last two weeks in Seymour, Derby, and Beacon Falls to provide feminine products to in-need area women.


Sen. Kelly applauded the generosity of residents for donating feminine products at drop boxes in each of the three towns to help support TEAM Inc’s community partners throughout the Valley.


State Rep. Nicole Klarides-Ditria, State Senators Kevin Kelly and Eric Berthel, and Seymour First Selectwoman Annmarie Drugonis hosted the feminine product drive from June 22nd through July 6th.


“As our nation struggles with a shortage in menstrual products and rising prices, we are working to support the great efforts of those at TEAM, Inc. focused on helping people in our community access necessities during these difficult times,” Senator Kelly said.


According to a report by the Alliance for Period Supplies, 1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period products in the past year due to lack of income. Additionally, a national shortage in period products combined with rising inflation has put additional pressure on those in need.
