PERIOD. @ Toledo, OH

“Thank you so much to everyone who came out to our donation drive to drop off product!”

PERIOD. Toledo hosted a product drive to benefit menstruators in need in Beirut, Lebanon in the wake of the explosion in August. Periods don’t stop in crises, and thanks to our tireless chapter members, menstruators will continue to be served where help is most needed.
