Period Partner® Donates 30,000+ Products to United Way Central Alberta

CLEVELAND , April 15 /Businesswire/ - The most recent recipient of Hospeco Brands Group’s monthly Period Partner® donation is United Way Central Alberta. The donation includes 10,000 pads, 10,000 tampons, and 12,000 Scensibles® SBX50 personal disposal bags. Each month, Hospeco Brands Group donates menstrual care products to a worthy cause as part of a commitment to advocacy for the communities and markets in which it serves.

These donations will be used as part of an initiative of Soroptimist International Central Alberta and United Way Central Alberta’s “Period Promise” campaign to bring free tampons, pads, and dispensers to all washrooms of four schools in the Red Deer Public School District, including Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School, Eastview Middle School, and K-8 schools Normandeau School and G.H. Dawe School.

Period Partner regularly donates thousands of menstrual care products to organizations that help people in need. Since its inception, donations have topped more than 970,000. The goal is simple: to get these vital products to the people who need them.

Public awareness about the need for access to menstrual care products has ignited a movement calling for free and accessible pads and tampons in restrooms and public spaces around the world, including schools. Period Partner leads the conversation about universal access to menstrual care solutions in public restrooms, treating them as the necessities they are, just like soap, toilet paper, and paper towels. As a leading maker of hygiene, safety, and cleaning products for the away-from-home market, Hospeco Brands Group founded and supports the initiative.

In April 2019, the Government of British Columbia, which shares a border with Alberta, announced that all schools in that province must provide free menstrual products to students. This was the result of a United Way school pilot project with the New Westminster school division. The “Period Promise” program in Alberta will be piloted for 15 months, with the selected schools’ students and staff and using a survey to gauge its effectiveness.

Hospeco Brands Group makes products that protect, sanitize, clean, and provide care and comfort to millions around the globe. The company’s products make workplaces, businesses, schools, and other public facilities safer and more comfortable. Phone: 800-942-9199. Email:
