The Service Team works with shelters, food banks, community co-ops, and other organizations to provide them with period products. They also deliver period product "packs" to individuals across Ontario who are in need and experience period poverty.
Led by Eden B. & Sophie B.
The Service Team is constantly reaching out to new shelters and organizations to end period poverty. These Product Distribution partners, alongside the Volunteer Drivers, help deliver packs to those in need.
Since our inception in March of 2020, the Service Team has worked hard to collect products and host drives. As of November 2022, we've donated 122 menstrual cups/disks, 31 pairs of period underwear/reusable pads, 44 550 tampons, 65 746 pads, totalling to 110 449 products and 7409 packs!
2021 was a successful year for the Service Team, but we continue to work hard to help menstruators in need. For 2022, the Service Team aims to collect 50,000 products and run at least 15 product drives!
