Project G.I.R.L Donation Drop-off Event - Archived

Date – Saturday, Apr 17, 2021
10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Location:  First Unitarian Church of Honolulu

Donation Items Requested: Tampons, Pads & Menstrual Cups

Drop Off Event Sponsor:  Social Justice Council

Project G.I.R.L.(Girls Impacting Real Life) is a student formed organization determined to end period poverty. We want women, trans males, and non-binaries experiencing homelessness to obtain clean feminine products not only in their day-to-day life but especially during their menstruation cycle. Having unsanitary products and undergarments can lead to many health concerns and diseases. We believe menstrual hygiene products should be available to all regardless of social class, economic status, and race as they are another added expense in every menstruator’s life.

This event is a “drive through, contactless” drop off. Cars can come by to drop off their donations in the box provided and leave. For the safety of everyone at this event, all volunteers will be wearing a mask. We will also have wipes and sanitizer available for the volunteers. We will be using surface wipes to sanitize all the donations once the drive has finished and all products have been received. Volunteers will stay 6 feet apart away from the cars unless the people donating request help from volunteers to take the donations.
