UWCA Period Supply Drive

March 8-29, 2024

Make a difference in the fight against period poverty in Central Alabama

As part of Women’s History Month, United Way of Central Alabama is launching a Period Supply Drive to address a critical need in our community. We’re seeking donations of tampons, pads and other menstrual products to ensure that everyone has access to essential hygiene items.


Why is this important?

This event was organized after a poll of United Way partner agencies showed that the supplies are in critical need locally. More than half of the population in Central Alabama experiences periods, and yet many individuals face limited or no access to menstrual products. By participating in this drive, you can directly impact the lives of those in need.

How can I help?
