Tampon Tuesday

United Way Centraide North East Ontario - Thursday, 13 February 2020

Periods are a fact of life, and although menstrual hygiene products are a necessity, many people in our community, especially those living in poverty, simply cannot afford them.

United Way Centraide North East Ontario and the Sudbury & District Labour Council are inviting you, to take part in Tampon Tuesday by collecting and donating much-needed menstruation products in support of individuals in need.

We encourage you to involve your friends, family and colleagues and join us at Spacecraft Brewery on March 10th anytime between 6-9:00 p.m. to drop off your products. Your support will have a positive impact on many people in our community,

Interested in starting a collection drive at your workplace? Do you have a few hours to volunteer at the event? Let us know!!! We have posters and other materials that can help raise awareness.

For more information about Tampon Tuesday, our partnership with labour, or how you can get involved, contact Charlene Legacy at 705-560-3330 ext. 223 or by email at
