St. Louis Area Diaper Bank Hosts Third Annual Bloody Mary Brunch
Nonprofit's fundraiser to benefit its program that annually provides one million period supplies to girls and women in the St. Louis region.
By: St. Louis Area Diaper Bank
Attendees will have the interactive opportunity to count, sort, and pack period supply kits for local school partners. Other activities include raffles, a glitterati selfie station, special guest speaker Jennifer Gaines from Alliance for Period Supplies, and a brief presentation about the agency's efforts to end period poverty in St. Louis.
The period supply program distributes period supplies through community partners and advocates for the elimination of "period poverty". To date more than two million period supplies have been distributed in St. Louis, with 75,000 period supplies allocated each week. Two-thirds of low-income women in St. Louis cannot afford menstrual hygiene products, with 46% of low-income women having to choose between food and period supplies.
Founded in 2014, the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank provides diaper and period supply access to the region's low-income families, as well as raises community awareness about the causes and consequences of diaper need and period poverty. The nonprofit is a member of the National Diaper Bank Network and its sister organization Alliance for Period Supplies, a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to eliminating diaper need and "period poverty" in America. The period supply program ensures access to menstrual hygiene products, which allows full participation in daily life with dignity.
