Share the Dignity Drive to collect period products

Share the Dignity launches Dignity Drive through August in Woolworths stores

Share the Dignity has again teamed up with Woolworths to launch a Dignity Drive on the Central Coast to directly address an increased need for freely available period care products.

Woolworths will donate five cents from each period care product sold during the drive during August to help fund support local community initiatives and Share the Dignity’s Dignity Vending Machines.

Since the partnership’s beginnings in 2019, Woolworths customers have donated more than 575,000 period care products and Woolworths has donated more than $2M to support those experiencing period poverty.

In March alone, Woolworths customers donated more than 82,000 period care products and Woolworths donated $119,000 to Share the Dignity.

In April, Woolworths and Share the Dignity announced the milestone of the 100th Dignity Vending Machine sponsored by Woolworths.

The machines offer free period products accessible in bathrooms in schools, hospitals, homeless shelters, women’s refuge centres and other local community organisations.

Nationally, Woolworths sponsored machines have dispensed over 68,000 free period packs since the first machine was installed in 2019.

The Dignity Drive will run in Woolworths supermarkets across the Central Coast and customers can purchase any period care product and donate it in store via the pink collection boxes located at the front of every Woolworths store or add a cash donation at Woolworths registers.
