Help Build First Period Kits

Normalize menstruation and periods by packaging a First Period Kit! These kits are distributed to low-income young individuals and include period necessities to aid in ensuring the first period is something that is welcomed rather than feared.

We welcome donations of individual items that we can use to build period kits at the warehouse - or you can gather all the materials (and some friends!), assemble and drop off completed kits at our warehouse!

Some ideas for kits:

  • Cosmetic bags (you know you have a million bags that came as free gifts with a makeup purchase)

  • Pads and pantiliners (we especially love U by Kotex products)

  • Ibuprofen or period pain reliever

  • Flushable wipes

  • Hand sanitizer

  • CHOCOLATE!

  • A personal note to the person who will receive the kit you made

  • A little something extra: fuzzy socks? a journal? lip balm?

If you are interested in making a donation or assembling First Period Kits, please contact our Program Manager, Cooper at Cooper.lumpkin@stlaps.org
