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 given to local agencies, food banks and service providers across the region. Although our main product drive is only once per year from March to May, donations are kindly accepted year round.
Period Promise is more than a product drive. United Way is advocating for those affected by period poverty by asking business and facility owners to sign the Period Promise Policy committing to provide free menstrual hygiene products to anyone accessing their facilities.
