Imagine not being able to shower whenever you wanted, or having your morning/evening routine depend on where you were able to get breakfast or spend the night.

Donate Feminine Hygiene Products

Lack of hygiene products is not just a third world issue. Many of our clients who have periods go without the maxi-pads they need for a variety of reasons: they’re too embarrassed to ask, they forgot to get some at a shelter, the shelter may have run out of the type of product they needed.

Support the most vulnerable women in your community. Consider donating maxi-pads or tampons
Donate Feminine Hygeine
Our female clients need access to clean, new feminine hygiene products. If you would like to donate, please contact our In-Kind Coordinator to schedule your donation at 202-503-1533 or inkind@thrivedc.org.
