Collect Period Products for People Experiencing Homelessness

Collect and donate period products (like tampons and pads) to local folks in need. Many of the 3.5 million Americans who experience homelessness each year have limited access to these essentials, which is why period products are one of the most-needed items in shelters. Use our tips to collect unopened period products and use our location finder to find a shelter near you. You'll earn verified volunteer hours and be entered for the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship. Let's Do This.
