Dear Brothers and Sisters;

United Way Niagara is excited to kick off a new campaign and initiative on March 3 to help those struggling with period poverty. We invite you to partner with us on this important special initiative.

About Period Promise:

Did you know that that 1 in 3 individuals living in poverty in our community are struggling to afford period products? Products of this nature are often overlooked as donations to shelters, food banks and other organizations.  The Period Promise campaign is a community wide period product drive where all donations are distributed to agencies and service providers across the region.  But it is more than that.

Period Promise encourages businesses and facility owners to commit to providing products free to anyone who needs them through the Period Promise Policy. If your organization would like to run a collection drive, commit to the promise or is already doing so, please contact United Way Niagara.

Different ways that you can help:

  • Host a collection drive in your workplace, your local, with family and friends!   
  • Attend a Period Promise event
  • Support the Period Promise Policy (Optional)

Your help in raising awareness for this issue would be greatly appreciated. When we work together as a community we can help people live with the dignity we all deserve.

Click Here. Sign up to run your own collection drive!
