Tampon Tuesday Event and Collection Drive

Many women right here at home are challenged monthly due to lack of access to, or affordability of, feminine hygiene products.

Gather your friends, family and colleagues and start a collection drive for much needed feminine hygiene products for the women in our community. These products will later be distributed to women and girls in need at YXE Connects in May 2019 and to other organizations in need.

Tampon Tuesday® is a registered trademark held by Bell Media and proud Labour and United Way Partnerships initiative.

In 2018

  • 45 unions, workplaces, groups or individuals formally registered for the initiative 
  • With the generous donations of product and money, almost 2300 packages of product were distributed late spring 2018
  • A second distribution of 500 additional packages were distributed on #GivingTuesday
  • Recipients included:
    • YXE Connects, OUTSaskatoon, AIDS Saskatoon, Bedford Road Collegiate, Mount Royal Collegiate, Westside Community Centre, Sanctum, Saskatoon Sexual Health, Interval House &, Adelle House, White Buffalo Youth Lodge, YWCA Shelter, Lighthouse Supported Living
