8th Annual Tampon Tuesday collection drive starts March 1st, 2024
Proudly hosted by United Way Saskatoon & Area and the Saskatoon & District Labour Council
Tampon Tuesday (TT) is a registered trademark of Bell Media. The initiative is a unique way of bringing the local community together to support people with periods. Since 2017, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Labour Congress have partnered with Bell to use this trademark for period product collection and distribution initiatives across Canada. TT profiles the basic need for all individuals to have access to necessary period products and the challenges faced by many to obtain or purchase them. Through this initiative, volunteers and donors like you have distributed tens of thousands of period products to people in need through community-based organizations and schools in Saskatoon and surrounding area.
Nearly 23,000 packages have been distributed since 2017.
That’s an estimated value of over $112,800!
3 Ways to Get Involved
During the month of March, collect period products with your friends, family, and/or colleagues. Schedule a collection pick-up by contacting United Way of Saskatoon and Area at 306-975-7700 or email email@example.com. See our collection drive kit below for resources.
