In 2015 we started Project Love the Ladies as a yearly service project to collect feminine hygiene products for those that cannot afford them. We place donation drop off boxes throughout Bloomington/Normal  but wanted to make sure that anyone who wanted to donate, whether near or far, could!

Most people don't think to donate sanitary pads or tampons when they make food pantry donations so they usually don't have enough to give out.  Food stamps cannot be used to purchase them. 100% of the funds collected here will be used to buy supplies for the Neville House Domestic Violence Shelter, Home Sweet Home Mission, and St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry.

*We are not tax exempt. We are not a 501C charity. We are just a group of women trying to help others. 100% of monetary donations are used to purchase feminine hygiene products for our beneficiaries. Donations are not tax deductible.*

Project Love the Ladies would like to thank you for your contributions to our annual family Lenten service project. This year, thanks to your generosity, we were able to give 17% more feminine hygiene supplies to St. Vincent de Paul, Neville House, and Home Sweet Home Mission. Your donations filled 63 white garbage bags – enough for 831 women for one month. These products cannot be purchased with food stamps. Our next drive will start Ash Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Until then, please include feminine hygiene supplies every time you donate. For more information find us on Facebook https;//www.facebook.com/Projectlovetheladies/

I donated because I want to help out. I know woman need these. I had endometriosis and went through a ton before my surgery.
