United Way Period Project Gala

Spiral Color and Flowers

2 in 5 people who menstruate struggled to buy period products in the last year due to the lack of income.

We want to restore dignity to menstruators who may be forced to choose between hygiene and food.

Together WE can deliver menstrual hygiene products to those in need, we're replacing poverty with community and shame with dignity. Lacking the ability to purchase menstrual hygiene products can be debilitating because it can hinder the ability to attend school or work. Not having proper supplies can be both embarrassing and stigmatizing. Many menstruators are already financially challenged making purchasing supplies challenging.

Join us for a fundraising Gala to help collect donations for the Period Project that will serve Montcalm and Ionia Counties.

GATHERING: Feminine hygiene products and Ipsy bags at the door

What is a Period Hygiene Bag?

A Period Hygiene Bag is a small bag that contains a supply of products – tampons, pads, and wipes. These Period Bags help support local 13 school districts, food pantries, domestic abuse shelters, homeless shelters, and many health and human service agencies right here in Montcalm and Ionia Counties.  Did you know that just $28 helps cover the cost of a period bag?
