Supply the Cycle

Supply the Cycle

Because there's one period you shouldn't have to worry about in school.

Being a teen is hard. School, friends, extra-curriculars. Now imagine that on top of all that, you are experiencing economic insecurity—and you’ve started to menstruate. Worrying about having access to menstruation supplies while at school can cause stress and negatively affect attendance and academic performance. Let’s eliminate this barrier to learning.

How can you help?


Donate menstrual products for local students at our Community Schools.

Donate a Period Pack for $10. This will include a toiletry bag already filled with a variety of menstrual items for a student. Donate now!

Donations accepted through June.


Host a supply drive and encourage your network to donate. 


Tuesday, July 16, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Once all donations are collected, please join us at United Way's Johnson Controls Volunteer Center to assemble 1,000 Period Packs for students at our Milwaukee Community Schools! Register today!
