What is period poverty?

Period poverty refers to:
  • The inability to easily access or afford menstrual products, and;
  • Limited or inadequate access to menstrual health education cause due to an individual's socioeconomic situation

Our goal at Idaho Period Project is ultimately to close the gap by providing essential period supplies to those in need and end period poverty in our state through legislation and awareness,

Who receives our donations?

For all product donations that Idaho Period Project receives, period packs are assembled to distribute to school aged menstruators across eastern Idaho. Monetary donations are used for period products, marketing materials, and spreading our mission to widen our impact. We appreciate our donors so so much! We wouldn't be where we are today without them.

What products do you accept for donation?

We are currently in need of pads, tampons, liners, menstrual cups, and period underwear. All products must be sealed, individually packaged, unscented, and unopened. A complete list needed items can be found in our Amazon Storefront.

What is a Student Ambassador?

Idaho Period Project Student Ambassadors are our student volunteers working within the schools to make BIG change! 

As a Student Ambassador, you can:
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Build relationships and community through service
  • Empower yourself and others
  • Create positive change by discussing issues and communicating program needs with others

Student Ambassadors will receive a monthly newsletter with an Empowerment Task. Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to choose at least 5 of the 12 tasks to complete. When 5 or more tasks are completed, Student Ambassadors will earn the Idaho Period Project Service & Empowerment Awards for their outstanding service.
