What items are on your wish list? 

Regular size tampons, individually wrapped pads, panti-liners, and sanitary wipes, and cosmetic bags such as Clinique, Ipsy and Estee Lauder bags.


Why not distribute re-usable pads or menstrual cups?

We do not accept donations of or distribute re-usable pads or menstrual cups because the population we serve may not have access to a place where they can adequately clean these items, which could become a health risk. 


Why not distribute super or super-plus size tampons?

These present more of a risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome if worn too long, so we prefer to provide regular size tampons to girls and women in need.
