Student Campaign Sparks Change in Town

Aired September 29, 2022.
Needham students successfully advocated for free feminine hygiene products to be available in town buildings.

A group project at Needham High School led to a change within the school. That led to another student starting a campaign to bring that change to buildings throughout town. It is a fantastic example of how one idea can grow to make a difference on a larger scale. In this case, that change centered around the distribution of free feminine hygiene products. It is a cause that reaches wider than you might think. Ashley Morin reports.
