Last week, we put out a call for feminine products, in support of “Pink Moon”, the Brooklyn Central Library’s distribution of menstrual products to low-income teens. Thanks to donations from our members, the Flying Squirrel Homeschoolers Co-op, and members of our community at large, we collected 5 large bags of products to donate to the library’s distribution. Thank you all for contributing to such an important cause, which tends to get so little attention!
The Brooklyn Central Library will have a distribution of feminine products for low-income teens, called “Pink Moon”. It is a very needed project, as feminine products are a monthly need, they are expensive and hard to acquire through public programs, particularly for teens, who don’t have access to the same services as adults and don’t always have an adult in their lives who can help them navigate governmental help.
In support of that program, we are collecting feminine products at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture at 53 Prospect Park West, tomorrow, Sunday, from 10:30-1pm. If you can bring some products (please see list below), look for Taty.
Alternatively, you can make a financial donation for the purchase of the products at: https://bsec.org/donate/ ( please write Pink Moon on the notes so we know what the donation was for) by Sunday night, April 2, as we will purchase the products from donations on Monday.
The list of products they need is below:
New and wrapped reusable period underwear
New and wrapped reusable period cloths
New and wrapped menstrual cups
New/unopened boxes of maxi pads and tampons
Lose, individually wrapped tampons and maxi pads
Disposable period panties
