Create Period Kits for Teen Girls
SNAP benefits, commonly known as food stamps, do not cover the cost of tampons or pads, forcing financially struggling families to buy these monthly essentials. The Sharing Shelf is committed to providing each teen girl it serves with a supply of pads or tampons.
Volunteers are needed to organize drives or purchase supplies for a Period Kit for Teen Girls. Each kit should contain 20 maxi-pads or 20 tampons (regular sized preferred) with 20 panty-liners in a sealed, zip-close plastic bag. Full-size boxes or packages of all feminine hygiene products are greatly appreciated! This is a great opportunity for schools, church groups, employee teams, and youth groups. Express interest below to get started!
The Sharing Shelf is Westchester's clothing bank for children founded to combat clothing insecurity among low-income children and families in the community. It collects new and gently used clothing for infants, children, and teens. That clothing, sorted first by quality, is distributed to local, low-income children at no cost through nonprofits, schools, hospitals, and community groups in Westchester County. Each child or teen receives a week's worth of seasonally appropriate clothing matched to their sizing needs.
Age Minimum (with Adult): 12+, Minimum Age:13+
