Period Packing Party!
February 16, 2019 at 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Come help Silicon Valley DSA set up and prepare for the distribution of our Period Packs! After our successful online campaign of raising $1234, we now have all the materials ready to be sorted into individual packs that we can hand out to our unhoused neighbors.
San José’s homeless and unsheltered population is noted as over 4,350, but is likely higher due to underreporting. 33% of those reported identified as female, 1% as transgender, and 1% as neither female, transgender, or male. A hardship they face that is often overlooked is menstrual hygiene and relief from those symptoms. We aim to assemble these kits in order to help, and plan to distribute them during a day of service in the coming weeks.

The event will be held in San José at a private residence, the address will be available on RSVP. The building is wheelchair accessible, and non-gendered bathrooms are available in the residence.
