PAD PARTY to collect feminine care products for women in need

It’s a PAD PARTY
A period.ic gathering of women helping women No woman should have to choose between food for her family and proper feminine hygiene protection products. Period. This is exactly what Pad Party aims to fix. Pad Party is the first social event of its kind to collect only sanitary pads and tampons for women in need in the Rochester New York community. The products will be donated to various organizations that will distribute the products to women and teens in need. Public assistance programs such as Food Stamps do not cover the cost of any personal care items, including the basic necessity of feminine hygiene products. Pad Party, Tuesday, May 15 from 6 to 8 pm at Shear Ego Salon and Spa in Pittsford Plaza, will collect boxes of sanitary pads, tampons, or panty liners as an admission charge. Attendees will be treated to mini-manicures, chair and hand massages, as well as networking, food and beverages. Pad Party is a recognized event during National Women’s Health Week by the Office of Women’s Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’Office and sponsored by my Company. “Being able to provide basic toiletry necessities, especially feminine care products, are a huge help to the families that come in to Mission Share,” says Tom Hakes, director of Mission Share. “If not for places like Mission Share, many of these clients will have to make a choice between proper nutrition and proper hygiene care.”
