Delaware Women’s Office Collecting Period Products for Period Poverty Awareness Week
The Delaware Office of Women’s Advancement and Advocacy is teaming up once again with Junior League of Wilmington Delaware to collect women’s period products for Period Poverty Awareness Week. Period Poverty Awareness Week was created to draw attention to the issue of period poverty and the negative impact it has on people who menstruate. In simple terms, it’s to draw awareness to the topic of not having the means to afford period products, which is a basic human right and necessity.
The Delaware Office of Women’s Advancement and Advocacy is encouraging Delawareans to donate female hygiene products in the lobby of the Carvel building in Wilmington. At last year’s OWAA Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, guests donated 3,000 period products to the Stand Up. Period. Campaign!
The Carvel building in Wilmington is located at 820 N. French Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
