16-year-old high school student creates feminine hygiene product bags for homeless women

On Tuesday morning in Manteca, 16-year-old high school student Mia Mirante walked back and forth in the cold fog, helping to load backpacks containing feminine hygiene bags into a van to be distributed to unsheltered women at the 2022 Point-in-Time Count. Mirante saw a need to help homeless women in her community after realizing how much menstrual products cost monthly for women.
