Period Promise Campaign 2020

Nobody should have to pick between feeding their family and being able to afford basic hygiene products. But nearly 1 in 4 Canadian women have struggled to buy period products for themselves or their children.

Period Promise is a United Way Campaign to help vulnerable people live with the dignity we all deserve.

Join us between March 2 and 13th, 2020 by taking action and helping us provide period products to those in need throughout Kamloops.

How you can get involved:

  • Drop off a box of product – or maybe two to a participating organization (see list below) or at the Xchange – 286 Tranquille Road
  • Run a collection campaign with your coworkers, book club, classmates or friends.
  • Come celebrate on March 13th at the Xchange. From 8-12pm organizations will drop off their collected product; from 1-5pm – Pick up of product by non-profit and community organizations including ASK Wellness, YMCA-YWCA, Canadian Mental Health Association, Boys and Girls Club, Kamloops Immigrant Services, Interior Community Services and PIT Stop.

This is what Local Love looks like.
