Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues, 

I hope this email finds you and your family safe and well! As you all know, the pandemic has affected us all profoundly and most heavily, our low-income communities. I have taken the time to reflect upon the Mt. Hope neighborhood, next to where I live, and how I can give back. I have chosen to focus on women's access to period products which is often an overlooked and misunderstood issue. 

1 in 5 of the 25 million women living below the poverty line in this country cannot afford period products - a public health issue that has grown worse during the pandemic [1]. Yet period products are not covered by food stamps or Medicaid, forcing women without resources to use paper towels, toilet paper, and cardboard. 

The mission of PVDPERIOD. is to donate period products to women in need who live in Providence, RI (PVD). Our goal is to launch our project in the Mt. Hope neighborhood, and see where it takes us.

Camp Street Ministries is a non-profit organization that runs a food pantry twice a week for the Mt. Hope community. Director Jacqueline Watson estimates 50-100 women are in need of period products every month, which the pantry does not supply. 

Our idea is simple: To raise money to buy period products for women to access at the food pantry. Our goal is to provide a monthly supply of period products to each of the women in need. 
PVDPERIODoffers a simple, direct, and affordable way to address the public issue right here, right now. 
100% of your donations go directly to purchasing period products to donate!
