The Junior League of Wilmington is striving to achieve period equity for all Delawareans through its initiative, Stand Up. Period.
In May 2020, the JLW joined forces with the Alliance for Period Supplies (APS) in an effort to increase their support network and inventory of desperately needed period supplies. APS is a national organization which collects, warehouses and distributes period supplies to 75+ allied programs in over 30 states, including the JLW in Delaware. And in October 2020, the JLW received its first donation from APS of an astounding 69,000 pads and 56,000 liners! The JLW is currently preparing to distribute the donated pads and liners in the community to provide approximately 2,300 people with a month’s worth of supplies.
