Diaper and Menstrual Product Drive for Mother's Day

Friday, May 7, 2021 25 Iyyar 5781

4:00 PM - 6:00 PMBY Circle Drive Through

This week at Shabbat Renewal  we will celebrate our moms and collect diapers and menstrual products in a donation drive in our moms’ honor.  Neither diapers nor menstrual products are covered by SNAP or WIC, so in this continuing time of economic hardship we are looking to support two great organizations that support women:  I Support the Girls and LIFEHouston.  

Two ways you can help:

  1. Bring your donations to Beth Yeshurun on Friday, May 7th from 4:00pm - 6:00pm before Shabbat Renewal services.  
  2. Purchase items from the Amazon wishlists I Support the Girls or LIFEHouston (details below). 

To bring donations

Both organizations are accepting new packages and opened packages as long as the items are individually wrapped:

  • Tampons - all kinds, especially super
  • Pads - all kinds, especially overnight maxi (no pantiliners, please)
  • Menstrual cups
  • Diapers - all sizes, especially 4, 5, 6
  • Wipes

Collection will be at the circle carpool drive-through between 4:00pm and 6:00pm on Friday, May 7th.  You are welcome to stay in your vehicle and masked volunteers will collect your generous donations.

To purchase from Amazon:

Purchase products from these Amazon wishlists and items will be sent directly to the organizations. 

Diapers and wipes will be donated to LIFEHouston, which provides baby care essentials to Houston families since 1988. Local Infant Formula for Emergencies (or L.I.F.E) is a low-barrier resource for needy families to feed, diaper and clothe their babies.

Menstrual products will be donated to I Support the Girls - Houston, who have been collecting and distributing menstrual products and bras worldwide since 2015. It is part of the larger, global 'I Support the Girls' organization, helping women and girls experiencing homelessness, domestic violence and lack of access to menstrual hygiene products.
