On Friday, West High School senior, Jordy Cambara joined Taylor Deckert on Talk of the Town.

He recently served on the State of Iowa Youth Advisory Council, and learned about how important it is to have available menstrual products in schools.

He's now leading a local drive for period products for West High students, hoping to expand the project to East and North High.

"I've been purchasing menstrual supplies with my own money and hope to do more. I know that it’s unusual for a high-school age male to be leading this effort but I know how important it is for the health and lives of the girls I go to school with," Cambara said.

He has created a GoFundMe to help Jordy purchase menstrual products and distribute them across the three schools.

As of Friday, he has raised over $1,600 for the products.
