In the aftermath of a natural disaster, there’s a lot of work to be done: community rebuilding, insurance claims, and emotional repair. Even though life for those affected has, in some ways, been put on pause, it’s unlikely that their periods have followed suit.
LOLA believes in every woman’s right to access feminine care products, and has been working for over a year with Support The Girls, a charitable organization that distributes donations of tampons and maxi pads to homeless women across the United States.
As soon as we heard the devastating news of Hurricane Harvey and the destruction it caused in the Houston area, we expedited 4,000 tampons to STG’s Texas affiliates who are currently receiving donations to help Houston evacuees. You can read more about how STG will be utilizing our donation here.
This week we also donated an additional 30,000 feminine care products to support more women though Bethenny Frankel’s B Strong campaign, a charity for women in crisis. This donation will benefit an additional 900 female residents as they get back on their feet in the months ahead. Read more about the donation here.
While we know this is just the beginning of a long rebuilding process for the affected areas, we will continue to do everything we can to support women struggling in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. We are so inspired by the number of inquiries we’ve received from our community asking how we are giving back and how they can pitch in alongside us during this challenging time.
Should you want to support the cause further, please ship feminine care products to our friends at STG via the address below.
