Uplifting Drive

The Uplifting Drive is here! From September 1st to October 31th, we will be collecting bras, feminine hygiene items, purses and other items for women in need. 

In collaboration with Pattys Beauty Academy and other community members, we will collect and distributes donations of new and gently used bras, and individually sealed tampons and maxi pads to women and girls. Whether they are homeless, in transitional housing, or fleeing domestic violence, women and girls should never have to compromise on dignity.

Women and girls who find themselves homeless shouldn’t have to worry about finding bras, much less proper menstrual products. 

Yet they wear the same bra for years, potentially causing health problems, and each month have to make a choice between paying for meals or buying a box of tampons.

Every woman should have the ability to maintain her dignity! The Uplifting Drive goal- to restore dignity and self-respect to women in need.

The items will be sorted and handed out between the first and second week of October.
