Find joined a fantastic grassroots initiative in February to bring menstrual products to those in need and we decided to get on board with another great org to keep the ball rolling!
This month we are a drop off location for all menstrual and hygiene products for
No Woman Without. Period., a great local organization that aims to be inclusive of diverse people across gender and sexuality spectrums.
They focus efforts on supporting those who face the most barriers and have least access to relevant services. This includes people who identify as women, girls, Two-Spirit, genderqueer, non-binary, and 2SLGBTQI+non-binary peoples.
Their 2021 goal is to raise $25,000 to go towards purchasing needed items for folks who can't otherwise access them.
We are accepting the following onsite during the month of April:
– Tampons (any brand, any kind)
– Maxi Pads
– Panty Liners
– Menstrual Treatment Products
For those interested in learning more on the barriers and struggles of someone who menstruates and is homeless, this video does a great job of explaining - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABch4VYOJZ0
