Event:

Bra and Menstrual Products Drive

The Charles E. Lakin Human Services Campus will continue collecting new/used bras and new sealed packages of tampons and maxi pads that we will then distribute to shelters and programs in the Council Bluffs/Omaha metro area. Bras are so essential for women’s health, self-esteem, employment, and more. Feminine hygiene products are expensive, and necessary every month for health and personal hygiene.

People rarely donate bras and feminine hygiene products, and all women and teenage girls could benefit from these items. Can you look in your drawers for any used bras that you no longer wear? Any kind of bra: sports bras, nursing bras, maternity bras, training bras, lacy bras, and more. Any sealed packages of tampons and maxi pads would be amazing as well, as we all know menstrual cycles happen to homeless women too and a woman shouldn't have to choose between a hot meal and a maxi pad, as both are equally important.

We are asking that donations be dropped off at MICAH House Monday thru Friday from the hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. If your company would like to host a donation drive in your office, we would be more than happy to come and pick up those donations from you as well.


Will you help The Charles E. Lakin Human Services Campus ‘Support the Girls’ to address the needs of thousands of homeless women and girls in our area?
