Menstrual product drive
Helping women domestic violence survivors
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)-Over the last year, nearly 2,000 women who are escaping abusive or unstable home environments have visited Voices of Hope in Lincoln for help. Inclusive period care is a brand new organization at UNL. Its members are hosting a menstrual product drive from now until Friday, October 29th.
These products will be donated to Voices of Hope to help survivors of domestic violence take one worry off of their plate. The sexual assault services coordinator at Voices of Hope told Channel 8 News that being able to supply these items allows for the clients they see to save their money and put it towards other things like household items or bills.
“We have 5 drop-off locations. 3 are here on campus. We have one at the Woods art building, Emerging media arts, and Old Father Hall. We also have two locations in the community which are Gomez art supply and Open Harvest co-op,” said Tessa Hardin the President of Inclusive Period Care.
