This month we are a drop off location for all menstrual and hygiene products for
No Period Without., a great local organization that aims to be inclusive of diverse people across gender and sexuality spectrums.
“Everyone of us is here because someone got their period. That’s something that should be celebrated and supported. Period Poverty and accessibility to menstrual hygiene products is an everyone problem and it’s our goal to ensure there is No Period Without.”
— Scarlet Bjornson, President and Founder of No Period Without.
No Period Without focuses their 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 and they are currently at just over $17,000.
We are accepting the following onsite during the month of October:
– Tampons (any brand, any kind)
– Maxi Pads
– Panty Liners
– Menstrual Treatment Products
