Period Supplies Matter

Period supplies allow me to be present. I'm a full-time student and I work a part-time job. Still I struggle to pay my bills and buy things many people take for granted...things like laundry detergent and even feminine hygiene products. Receiving a supply of menstrual pads makes a big difference in my life, physically and emotionally.

I love that the Alliance for Period Supplies is an inclusive organization that helps all people who menstruate. As a proud member of the LGBTQIA community, it's important to me to help all individuals who struggle with basic needs.

The pads I received because of the Alliance for Period Supplies helped me be able to go to work and provide for my two children.
