About the Event
The provincial board of PEI Women’s Institute and branches want to ensure there are sufficient menstruation products for the increasing number of clients at foodbanks across Prince Edward Island.
The aim of the “Taking Care of Women’s Business. Period. 28-day campaign” is to collect product or monetary donations to address the need for feminine hygiene products for P.E.I. food banks to ensure dignity for women is maintained.
Since 2015, the Campaign raised well over $47,000 worth of product or donation.
Each year, the entire inventory collected is distributed to food banks across the Island within weeks of the collection.
The PEIWI issues collections challenges to all WI branches, organizations, businesses, families, and individuals across Prince Edward Island.
The campaign takes place again this year from February 1st to the 28th.
Starting Monday, February 1, drop-off locations include any Murphy’s Pharmacy across P.E.I., Main Street Pharmasave in Souris and the WI Office at 40 Enman Crescent, in Charlottetown and will run until February 29. Murphy’s Pharmacies will match $500 of the OPTION+ brand.
Online donations can be made online to the Upper Room Hospitality Ministry: URHM.org.
