For the month of March, Atlanta Contemporary is excited to work with the Homeless Period Project to collect period products for those who live in communities that lack access to menstrual hygiene.

We are partnering with the Homeless Period Project, an organization that collects and distributes period products to shelters, refugee centers, free medical clinics, and schools that provide products to those in need. 

To contribute to the drive, visitors are invited to bring in the supplies listed below. All items must donated in their sealed, original bulk packaging. Atlanta Contemporary will bring donations to the Homeless Period Project at the end of March.

Supplies

  • - Menstrual Pads
  • - Tampons
  • - Liners
  • - Individually-wrapped feminine hygiene wipes

Homeless Period Project provides menstrual products following Atlanta-area organizations

Bio

The Homeless Period Project

The Homeless Period Project was founded in 2015 with a singularly focused mission to provide menstrual hygiene products to homeless living in shelters and on the street. After three years of volunteering in shelters, schools and churches, we recognize the problem of lack of access to menstrual hygiene is both tremendous and global. It is a problem that affects menstruation-age of all ethnicities and in all communities. The obstacle to access exists in schools, workplaces and homes — even requiring some to choose between food and hygiene.

In 2018, we expanded our mission to advocate on behalf of all because the need is far greater than we first realized. This cycle must be broken.

The Homeless Period Project is headquartered in Greenville, SC. We’re changing the world one community at a time by creating awareness and delivering menstrual hygiene products to those in need. We are part of a worldwide movement of similarly-focused NGOs and are accelerating the momentum by incubating ideas and exchanging mutual aid.
