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 June 2021, we've donated 39 menstrual cups, 20,507 tampons, 25,361 pads, totalling to 45,907 products and 2437 packs!
2020 was a successful year for the Service Team, but we continue to work hard to help menstruators in need. For 2021, the Service Team aims to collect 40,000 products and run at least 15 product drives!
Each pack has 7 tampons & 11 pads within.
