Homeless Period Ireland gathers sanitary products for girls and women who are experiencing homelessness, poverty or who are in direct provision or safe houses.
Tipp Collective is looking for volunteers to collect donations of products. Ideally we would like for local businesses to act as drop off points across Tipperary. The Green Sheep Café in Thurles (opposite Bowe’s pub) is first on board and will be accepting donations in Thurles.
We would like to have drop-off points in Nenagh, Roscrea, Carrick, Tipp Town and Clonmel if possible. All it involves is keeping a box for donated products on your premises and we will come and collect once a month and arrange delivery to local groups.
Even if you can’t get involved as a drop off point, consider picking up a pack of towels or tampons to donate next time you do your big shop.
If you or your business would like to get involved, please get in touch!
