International Women’s Day (March 8th) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. It has been observed since the early 1900s
This year, the committee has decided that it would like to mark the day by having a collection of toiletries especially for women, so they can be distributed to the Foyer Dom Bosco, with whom we already have links.
We would love to give every woman at the shelter a selection of toiletries. There will be various collection points around the country in order for you to drop off any products from the following list that you would like to donate. We will then bag the items up for distribution.
- Shampoo, conditioner
- Shower gel
- Toothpaste and tooth brushes
- Hand cream/body lotion
- Hand sanitizer
- Sanitary products, such as tampons, panty liners etc…
The last item on this list is particularly important as the products are often expensive but they really are a necessity.
Please do support this very worthy cause. You are also welcome on the day of the event (March 8th) to come with us to the shelter.
Keep your eyes peeled for updates on the BLC Facebook page and website for drop off dates and collection points. Or contact Jennifer Scott McCue (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange to drop off products with her.
