Tampon Tuesday 2020 - Collection Drive

In recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8, SEIU-West is participating in the Labour & United Way Partnership’s 4th Annual Tampon Tuesday collection drive.   

Many people face a monthly challenge due to lack of access to, or affordability of, feminine hygiene products. Sometimes it's often a choice between food and sanitary products especially for the homeless. Some girls are missing school attendance due to inability to afford sanitary products.

We can do our part to help by getting our friends, family and colleagues and start a collection drive for much needed feminine hygiene products for those in our community.

That’s why each SEIU-West office is once again participating in Tampon Tuesday, a collection drive that provides SEIU-West members the opportunity to collect and support the provision  of menstrual products to women in need.

For a chance to win a Hillberg & Berk 'Venus' pin, send us pictures of your collection. 

Email actions@seiuwest.ca or post your picture to our Facebook page with #TamponTuesday2020 by March 10th, 2020.

WHEN: All SEIU-West Offices will be collecting products until March 10, 2019.
