Every28Days drive for feminine hygiene products
An event every week that begins at 1:00am on Monday and Thursday, repeating until February 29, 2020
Throughout the month of February, Share will host their Every28Days drive to collect donations of feminine hygiene products for low-income and homeless women and girls who struggle to afford these items. In addition to donating needed products, businesses and organizations are encouraged to host a collection bin. To host a bin, contact Heather Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org. Share will provide a bin and signage, and include the location on a list of donation locations which will be promoted on all Share’s social media sites. Share is working with local nonprofits who serve women and girls in need to help get these donations to those who need them. Feminine hygiene products cannot be purchased with food stamps and are extremely expensive for women with limited or no means. Women and girls experiencing homelessness and poverty are at increased risk of pelvic infections, toxic shock syndrome and challenges in cleaning clothes during their menstrual cycles. Join to celebrate Every28Days from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 28, at Warehouse ’23, 100 Columbia St., Vancouver.
