Location + Parking Information

This image has details about where exactly we’re located and several places you can look for on-street parking around the St. Anthony Center. (Republic St. is usually full so we would recommend you NOT count on a space there–consider it a bonus if you get one!)

Student Volunteers

Student Volunteers are always welcome at Tidal Babe Period Bank! Consider us when looking for rewarding ways to fulfill your community service hour requirements for school and clubs.

Group Volunteers

Bringing your group in to volunteer is a great way to get involved with our organization and give back to your community! We regularly host 2-3 hour private volunteer events for your school, work, church or club. Giving back to your local community is a great team-building activity! Email Jean to coordinate your volunteer event.

Young Volunteers

Kids are always welcome at Tidal Babe but we rely on their guardian to help us gauge how much they can help. Not only can we keep them busy with light work, we also have a small play area to keep younger kids occupied (and contained if you’ve got some really little ones!). Kids under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a guardian and maintain a youth to adult ratio of 5:1.

There are many ways your younger children can get involved outside the warehouse too. Whether it’s organizing a period supply drive in your neighborhood or school or an Empty-Your-Piggybank change drive to collect loose coins for Tidal Babe, it’s never too early to start teaching our kids how to serve others and their community. We’d also love to come to speak to your Daisy Troop, Girl Scouts, Cub or Boy Scouts, church youth group, or another group of youngsters about period poverty in the Greater Cincinnati community and how they can help to eliminate it.

**If you are under 18 years old, please download and bring a copy of the child volunteer waiver (linked below) that has your guardian’s signature. You will not be allowed to volunteer without it!**

*Send us a note if you have any questions or a younger group of children interested in helping!*
