Women in Business "Care for Down There" Drive

Care Down There drive

For the second year in a row, the Oak Park Chamber of Commerce's Women in Business group is hosting an amazing drive in support of Beyond Hunger. Last year, the drive brought in 581 pounds of much-needed items for our pantry.

Through May 10th, they will be collecting menstrual products, adult products, and diapers at the sites listed below. These items are not easy to come by at our food pantry, despite a consistent need for them in the communities that visit us. These items are not only wanted, but needed for a dignified individual and family life. Women in Business is accepting the following items:

  • Diapers - all sizes
  • Pads - all sizes
  • Tampons
  • Wipes

 Join Women in Business in-person at Beyond Hunger on May 10th:

  • Bring your donation of menstrual products, diapers, adult incontinence pads, wipes, or toilet paper.
  • Grab a coffee and something yummy to eat -- courtesy of Beyond Hunger.

If you are joining in-person, register here.
