Boston Period Product Dispenser Project
According to a recent study conducted by Always, 1 out of 3 parents reported feeling worried about affording period products due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and financial constraints.
In 2019, Mass NOW administered their State of Menstrual Access survey; 56% of Massachusetts school nurses reported observing students missing class to obtain period products.
We are currently accepting applications for our pilot Menstrual Hygiene Product Distribution 2.0. The selected community organizations will receive a free Aunt Flow period product dispenser along with a box full of 500 pads and 500 tampons to refill the dispenser as needed. In addition, we will continue providing free products to the organization as the demand increases.
If you would like to donate or sponsor an organization so their organization receives a dispenser, please click the donate button below.
Must be a community organization located in Boston, MA
Must be a nonprofit organization, library, shelter, youth-centered organization, or community health center supporting Black and Brown people.
Must have a dedicated staff member to replenish the dispenser as needed (products will be supplied).
Must be committed to having staff/ volunteers participate in a virtual menstrual equity workshop.
We will be prioritizing organizations that are currently providing in-person services to community members.
