We need your help. PERIOD.

Our period promise: To provide dignity one box at a time.

Almost one quarter of people who menstruate in Canada say they have struggled to afford menstrual products for themselves or their children. And when people don’t have menstrual products, they miss school, work, or other opportunities to contribute to their community.

By uniting with our neighbours, local businesses, unions, schools, and community organizations, we can support people in need by making sure they can access basic needs, like period products.

Beginning March 5, we will be hosting collection drives for period products across the region. Consider purchasing an extra product (or two) the next time you’re at the pharmacy or grocery store, and drop it off at one of our community locations by March 31.

You can visit any of the following locations to drop off products:

United Way of Thunder Bay (1085 Carrick St. Upper Level)
Carol’s Cakes (110 Waterloo St. S)
Swag Events (819 Gore St. W)

Thanks also to those who donated at the collection drives held at the Thunder Bay & District Labour Council International Women’s Day March & Celebration and the Women’s Business Showcase Market hosted at Goods & Co.
