The Red Wrap Initiative is underway! We are excited to be partnering with two women’s shelters in New York City area in both Brooklyn and Manhattan.
The Initiative is comprised of two main parts: the donation drive and the distribution event. In recognition of Women’s History Month, beginning on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2018, we will collect feminine hygiene products (maxi pads/sanitary napkins, tampons, and panty liners) to support homeless women in NYC.

We are forming a total of two teams to staff the distribution event at each location. The distribution events will begin at 12:30 PM and include sorting and distribution of donated supplies as well as a 15 – 30 minute workshop on reproductive and menstrual health and hygiene.
