Feminine Hygiene Drive: DYI
A great project to conduct yourself or with friends!
We would first recommend finding a local women's/homeless shelter in your area to donate the items to. Give them a call to learn about acceptable donation items
After finding and contacting a local shelter, according to their donation regulations, start to buy/collect affordable quality products you would trust to use on yourself!
In light of COVID, consider these products: quality hand sanitizer, wipes, face masks/coverings, and gloves. Other resourceful materials could be, body wash, lotion, shampoo, and disposable menstrual products.
Lastly, safely donate the items to the shelter, be sure to wear a mask, properly wash/sanitize your hands to help to stop the spread!
Encourage your friends and family to give this project a chance!
Always remember your voice and advocacy is powerful!
Below are some local shelters in the Boston area:
