During COVID-19, many individuals began experiencing period poverty due to unexpected financial insecurities. In fact, one-third of Canadians under the age of 25 who menstruate struggle to buy enough products every month. The implementation of period pantries is important during these difficult times, as the high cost of menstrual products still acts as a barrier for lower-income individuals.
Our goal is to supply the community with free menstrual products in order to advocate for menstrual equity. Monetary donations will help us buy products, maintain our pantries, and expand to other locations to increase community presence. The funding will grow our network of Pop-Up pantries and allow us to continue advocating for menstrual equity.
Any donation will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your kind contribution.
