THE TIDAL BABE PERIOD BANK DISTRIBUTION PROCESS
How do we get free period supplies to families in need?
GENEROUS FOLKS DONATE PERIOD SUPPLIES TO TIDAL BABE
Individuals, businesses, churches, community groups (you name it!) all donate period supplies to help lighten the load for their neighbors and friends.
WE PURCHASE ANY TAMPONS, PADS, AND OTHER SUPPLIES STILL NEEDED
The demand for period supplies is far greater than the product donations we receive, so we use donated dollars to purchase any remaining supplies we need to fill our monthly orders.
AGENCIES PLACE REQUESTS FOR PERIOD SUPPLIES ONLINE
We work exclusively with local partner agencies who request period supplies each month through our online portal. This allows us to easily track the demand for free period supplies and get them to those who need them most.
VOLUNTEERS SORT, COUNT, AND ASSEMBLE PERIOD SUPPLY KITS
We wouldn’t exist without the volunteers who put in over 400 hours each month to make sure our orders are packed with dignity and ready on time.
AGENCIES PICK UP THEIR ORDERS ONCE A MONTH
Our period supply program can act as an incentive for each agency’s ongoing case-management programs. After pickup, our period kits head back to offices for sorting and distribution.
MENSTRUATORS PICK UP THEIR PERIOD SUPPLY KITS AT THEIR MONTHLY APPOINTMENT
Social service agencies meet regularly with their clients for monthly appointments which is when our donations are distributed.
