About Period Promise
Period products are a basic necessity. If you are living in poverty or are vulnerable in other ways, access to tampons, pads or cups can be challenging especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Period Promise initiative by United Way mobilizes citizens to be a part of the solution. All donations are given to local agencies, food banks and service providers across the region.
Krista Butters, the Community Impact Associate with the United Way lead an enlightening discussion on the initiative that aims to reduce vulnerability and isolation caused by period poverty. 
Period Promise is more than a product drive. United Way is advocating for those affected by period poverty by asking business and facility owners to sign the Period Promise Policy and commit to providing free period products to anyone accessing their facilities when it is safe to do so.
