Tampon Tuesday

March 8 @ 9:00 am - March 22 @ 5:00 pm

 

Tampon Tuesday donation drive in Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry

Donations will be collected from March 8 – 23, 2021 at the United Way/Centraide SDG office 

United Way/Centraide SDG is excited to run the first Tampon Tuesday product drive in our region, starting on International Women’s Day. The theme this year is to #ChooseToChallenge, and we want to use this as an opportunity to raise awareness about period poverty. It’s important that the most vulnerable in our region have access to menstrual hygiene products as they are often the most requested from shelters and foodbanks but the least donated.

Starting March 8 and running until March 23, 2021, community members are encouraged to donate pads, tampons, liners, cups, and other menstrual hygiene products to help fill this gap in our region. Donated products will be given to Sexual Assault Support Services Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry & Akwesasne and Maison Baldwin House.

How to give

Collection Site: Drop off menstrual hygiene products at United Way/Centraide SDG on 55 Water St. West, Suite 240

Online: Donate products through our Amazon Wish List or send a monetary donation for us to purchase menstrual products here.

Workplace and Groups donating and/or doing a collection drive:
Shopper’s Drugmart (located at 1260 Brookdale Ave)
Inspire Community Support Services
Seaway Valley Community Health Centre

If your group or workplace would like to be added to the list please email stephanie@unitedwaysdg.com
