I bet you’ve donated food, clothes, shoes, & toys to people in need, but I’m sure you never thought to donate something for women's most basic healthcare needs- period products! The St. Louis Area Diaper Bank created The St. Louis Alliance for Period Supplies to spread the word about local period poverty & collecting donations. We love this movement, but didn't realize how much it truly affected our community. When we found out two-thirds of local women couldn't afford period products, we knew we wanted to do our part to help!

In June, we held a period product drive with our sister stations at Entercom, where coworkers could bring in tampons, pads, liners & more. At the end of our drive, we took all of our donations to the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank, where they sort & organize products to be distributed to schools, offices, & individuals in need. 

Help out by bringing period products to donate to The St. Louis Area Diaper Bank at 6141 ETZEL AVENUE, ST. LOUIS, MO, 63133. Or find more ways to get involved by visiting thier website at https://www.stlaps.org/ways-to-help .

Thanks to American Eagle Credit Union for inspiring us to hold this collection drive as a part of their #KindnessCounts campaign to celebrate their 80th Anniversary! See more Random Acts of Kindness that we’ve done with AECU here!
