The Homeless Period project is a non-profit organization that distributes menstrual supplies to women and girls in need.
On Wednesday, people were invited to donate boxes of things like tampons, pads, liners, and individually-wrapped hygiene wipes.
“When women and girls don’t have access to these products, they’re forced to either use things to makeshift these products or they stay out of sports, they miss schools,” said Sharron Champion, the co-founder of the Homeless Period Project. “Think of all the more women and girls we could help if we’re not having to pay taxes on these products.”
