Now - April 29th at participating locations

Many individuals living in poverty are unable to access the basic products required to manage their menstrual health and this negatively impacts their ability to participate in daily activities.Together, we can ensure that all individuals have the sanitary access they need to maintain dignity and remain connected to daily life. Join us in honor of International Women's Month, in collecting sanitary products to be distributed to our houseless population by the Downtown Streets Team.
