product drive for Basic Necessities

Basic Necessities is the only dedicated diaper and period products bank in the ArkLaTex. SNAP, WIC, & Medicaid do not cover diapers, period products, or incontinence supplies; support this non-profit by donating period and diaper products on campus (drop off in UC420). Most menstruation products are marketed as “feminine hygiene” products for cis-gender women. Support trans & non-binary folx by donating supplies and using more gender-inclusive language to discuss these products.
