Provided 173,682 menstrual pads and tampons to community organizations, schools, food pantries and in our Wardrobe Packs.
Supported more than 120 nonprofits, schools and hospitals with clothing, hygiene items, period products, diapers and other items
Hosted over 800 volunteers in our warehouse and engaged many more in the community who organized drives, filled kits, and took home projects.

In 2023, we opened the first free "store" for teens in times of crisis and emergency to select their own clothing.
