We support The Homeless Period Project. You can help us.
“You may think of your period as an annoyance but can you imagine not having pads/tampons every month? Did you know that feminine products are the least donated products to homeless shelters? Did you know that many girls in our schools do not have access to these necessities? For many women the implications of living without these necessary supplies are serious… it’s the difference between attending school or work, between peace of mind and humiliation or between infection and health.”
Our monthly New Moon Group LunaWise is collecting donations over the course of the year to help us bags with essential supplies during bi-annual service projects. Anyone can drop off supplies at the Complete Life Coaching offices at 1801 Rutherford Rd. Thank you for supporting women and girls in need of basic supplies that it’s so easy to take for granted.
You can also join us at our next “Period Party” to help us make period supply bags that we will deliver before the holidays to The Homeless Period Project in Anderson, SC.
Here is a detailed list of most needed supplies in order to provide as much relief as possible. This is even more critical than normal since so many people have been effected by the devastating hurricanes in Florida, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and other parts of the Caribbean.
- Maxi Pads (choose pads over tampons if you can only contribute one or the other)
- Super Plus Tampons
- Panty Liners
- Individually wrapped wipes (optional but SO VERY HELPFUL for homeless women)
- Quart sized zip lock bags (supplies will be packed together into quart size bags, and we can fit about 50 quart bags into a trash bag for delivery to HPP)Of course any brands are acceptable, but the organization recommends WalMart’s Equate brand simply because we are able to help more people by stretching all our dollars as far as they can reach.
