FLOWVEMBER 2020

resisterhoodLA's 4th annual

menstrual FLOWvember
period kit party
is going virtual!

Sunday, November 15

via no-contact drive-thru
+ streaming online!

WHAT IS FLOWVEMBER?

Period products are one of the most requested but least donated items for people experiencing homelessness.

For our 4th annual menstrual FLOWvember event, we're raising money to build 1000 hygiene kits with a special focus on period poverty.

Join us online on Sunday, November 15th to build hygiene kits, write notes of encouragement for recipients, and hear from speakers about how we can advocate for our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Volunteers will pick-up supplies via no-contact drive-thru and build their hygiene kits at home while participating in our online FLOWvember event! After returning the completed kits they will be distributed by one of our partner outreach organizations.


 

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

DONATE

Each kit costs $5 to assemble. Donate money to provide highly requested hygiene kit items.

NOTES

One of the most important elements of our kits is the "note of encouragement."

SHARE

Help us get the word out by sharing on social media and inviting friends to donate and volunteer!

WHAT IS A HYGIENE KIT?

A hygiene kit is a 3-in-1 tool.

 

A hygiene kit contains basic hygiene items that provide our neighbors experiencing homelessness with tools to maintain their health and sense of dignity.

 

Our non-profit partners use hygiene kits as a first step in their outreach & relationship-building.

 

Assembling hygiene kits is an impactful hands-on volunteer opportunity to build empathy and advocacy within our housed community.

 

Our kits contain: toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, bath wipes, a first-aid kit, toilet paper, bottled water, a snack, a pair of socks, menstrual products, a mask, and a note of encouragement.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?
