The Homeless Period Project In collaboration between SOPHe Course Union, Women in ITM, & Real Estate Ryerson

The Homeless Period Project is a non-profit campaign that aims to provide menstrual hygiene products in support of homeless women and trans people in Toronto. An issue that's been overlooked by many, this project runs in the hopes of distributing as much donations as possible to as many shelters.

What: Menstrual hygiene products (unused tampons, pads, diva cups, heating pads, etc.) will be collected throughout Feb 1 - Mar 8 (International Women's Day). Monetary donations are also accepted - 100% of funds will be used to purchase more feminine products to be donated to homeless shelters.

Where: Donations will be collected at the WITM office - TRS 3141. We are also accepting monetary funds through Tilt - no minimum amount required!

When: Donations will be collected from February 1st until the end of the semester. On International Women's day, the donations will be distributed to the shelters.

100% of all funds and products will be donated to the following shelters:

Mary's Home (Society of St. Vincent de Paul)

Mary's Home accommodates and welcomes women of different ages, cultures and religions.
