CWS Period Pack (Menstrual Hygiene Kit)

In many parts of the world—including here in the United States—some women and girls live in period poverty, lacking the necessary feminine care supplies.

Now you can help women and girls living in period poverty.

How it Works

Providing Period Packs to help end Period Poverty is an easy way you can help share your love with others. It’s a chance to be an even greater blessing to women and girls who lack access to necessary feminine care supplies like sanitary napkins, tampons, and soap. And it’s easy! Whether you are making Period Packs as an individual or hosting a Period Pack party with your friends, by making these simple kits you will be offering women and girls a sense of dignity during the menstrual cycle.



Set a goal for how many Period Packs you would like to assemble. Each kit is valued at $14, but with some thrifty shopping you can assemble a kit for a lot less.



Invite other women and girls to join in the fun and help you by purchasing the supplies for the Period Packs.



Now it's time to assemble the Period Packs as a group. Maybe you could even host a Period Pack Party?



Following your collection, the Period Packs can be dropped off at a CWS Kit Depot or simply mailed to our warehouse.

“The women at our gathering really enjoyed the ‘hands on’ project of assembling Period Packs. We want to encourage other groups to join in this important service project.”
