Bring your friends, your co-workers, your sisters and join us for a PERIOD PARTY on Tuesday, February 28, 5 to 7 p.m., at the Garage Bar & Grille, 1101 W Fourth Plain Blvd. Click here for additional event details.
Homeless women typically know where to find a safe place to sleep or a hot meal to eat. But when it comes to taking care of their feminine hygiene needs, they often have nowhere to turn.
Tampons and sanitary pads usually top the list of needs at shelters, since they’re pricey and supporters don’t often donate them. Compounding the issue is the fact that clean showers are also scarce, and not washing during menstruation can lead to infections.
The event will include Bloody Mary’s and special food offerings, raffle prizes and auction items. Women need to work together to help women in need. Bring a feminine hygiene product or two, come have a drink and a laugh and make a difference! All products will be donated to Share’s Women’s Housing and Transition Program.
