Feb. 14. The sixth annual Well-Equipped Period campaign is a community menstrual health product drive partnering with local businesses, community group, and individuals to supply local organizations with menstrual health products annually.

The drive supports  area women’s shelters, resource centers and pantries, including FeedNC in Mooresville,  the Ada Jenkins Loaves and Fishes Pantry in Davidson and others.

“Lack of access to period products is a hidden human dignity issue. Local families and individuals are having to choose between period products and other necessities like food and clothing,” said Kendra Intihar, founder of Well-Equipped Period.

“Well-Equipped Period and the organizations we support are working hard to remove access barriers, decrease stigmas, and ensure that everyone has the products they need to stay healthy,” the Mooresville resident said.

Menstrual health products are rarely donated, not covered by government assistance, taxed and increasingly expensive to purchase in stores. Since 2017, the Well-Equipped Period campaign has provided nearly 150,000 critical hygiene items for free to organizations that serve this region.

Collecting through Feb. 28
