A Ballard charity has collected over 7,000 pads and tampons, and they need some help assembling “period packs” to hand out to low-income and homeless women in Seattle.
The charity is called Seattle T2P2, which stands for Towers of Tampons and Pyramids of Pads, and they’ll be at Locust Cider (5309 22nd Ave NW) on Saturday, March 9 from 12 to 3:30pm to create the kits.
“We’ve got a plethora of product!” they write on their Facebook event page. Their last packing party was for school girls heading back to school in the fall, and they created 800 kits with 40 people helping. “We will definitely need more hands on deck,” they write.
This packing party is also in honor of the organization’s first anniversary and International Women’s Day. “We will toast to your hard work, the organizations and menstruators who receive our kits, and those we haven’t reached yet.”
They’ll also have raffle prizes for volunteers: they’re giving away a 4-pack of cider, a flight of cider, and a t-shirt or growler filled with cider.
