YOU’RE INVITED to participate in our first Community Day of Caring®. Join us
virtually, learn about period poverty in Niagara and make an immediate impact!
United Way is excited to offer opportunities for workplaces, teams or community members looking to volunteer and give back to their community.
Gather virtually for an educational team building exercise and assemble kits which will immediately benefit those most in need in Niagara.
About the initiative: Period products are a basic necessity. If you are living in poverty or are vulnerable in other ways, access to tampons, pads or cups can be challenging especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Period Promise initiative by United Way mobilizes citizens to be a part of the solution.
All donations are distributed to local agencies, food banks and service providers across Niagara.
