About Period Promise

The Period Promise campaign works on eradicating period poverty. Thousands don’t have the financial means for safe period products and have to choose between basic necessities. Inaccessible menstrual products translate to isolation, mental duress, sick days and missed opportunities.

United Way makes period products accessible so community members don’t have to face the pressures that come with the lack of safe products. Physical and financial donations are collected and provided to community partners, foodbanks and local agencies across the Niagara region.

United Way is challenging businesses and organizations to sign the Period Promise to support the community by providing menstrual products at their locations, free of cost.

Join us and tell every person their basic needs matter, PERIOD.
