TISHOMINGO, Okla. -- Johnston County Helping Hands is distributing what they're calling "glam bags" to young women in the area.

The packages contain female hygiene items. It's a way for girls to get what they need -- whether it be at home or at school.

"I don't want people to go without; I want them to be able to have what they need and not feel so embarrassed," said Monique Jones of Johnston County Helping Hands.

The first batch of glam bags will be distributed at Milburn Public Schools later this week.

"I plan on putting the first hygiene box, and this will be for boys and girls, but these bags will be just for the girls... you know, to hide, because obviously no one else wants to know," Jones said, adding that she hopes the concept will spread to other area school districts.

The organization welcomes donations at 707 East Main Street in Tishomingo. Call 580-345-3701 for more information.
