ISSA Sponsors Successful Period Product Drive

Menstrual care products are a basic necessity, yet not everyone who needs these products has access to them. Accordingly, ISSA proudly sponsored the fifth annual Women in Government Relations (WGR) Period Product Drive through the month of October 2023.

More than 15,700 individual products were donated to the drive this year, exceeding the previous year by over 100. Donated products were delivered to the Greater DC Diaper Bank, which provides vulnerable families and individuals with an adequate and reliable source for basic baby needs and personal hygiene products across the Washington, D.C.-metropolitan area.

“WGR is immensely proud and grateful for the support for our Period Product Drive from our community, including sponsorship from ISSA, direct donations, and through social media sharing,” said Sarah Carillo, WGR education and professional development manager. “Thank you for making a meaningful impact with us!”

As part of its sponsorship of this year’s WGR Period Product Drive, ISSA participated in WGR’s Professional Women in Advocacy Conference, September 28–29, 2023. “It was an honor joining hundreds of other government-relations professionals in Washington, D.C., to celebrate, advance, and empower fierce women, including working towards ending period poverty,” said ISSA Senior Government Affairs Manager Stacy Seiden, who represented the association at the annual conference. “ISSA thanks those who contributed to this successful period-product drive and Women in Government Relations for the partnership opportunity.”
