Community Care Pop-UP

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Local organization Youth² – Youth Helping Youth will be holding a Community Care Pop-UP for feminine hygiene products on Saturday, July 10 at 112 Spring Street from 2-4 p.m. 

Many women struggle to get vital products because they aren’t covered by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program) and instead they have to use their own money to buy the products. Youth² is trying to help out by collecting pads and tampons and distributing them between local organizations – CAPTAIN (Community Action Programs for Teens and Interested Neighbors), Wellspring, and the Oakwood Community Center Food Pantry – to help the women who need these products.

CAPTAIN aids runaway teens. Another organization that will be receiving the products is Oakwood Community Center Food Pantry in Troy, that distributes food, hygiene products, and more throughout the community. The last organization is Wellspring in Saratoga Springs, which takes in women and children that are victims of domestic abuse. Youth² is also looking for a contact to link them to a correctional facility or jail that is in need of feminine hygiene products for their incarcerated women.

If you want to help by purchasing feminine hygiene products (boxes of pads or tampons) or $5 gift cards from Price Chopper, CVS, Target, or Wal-Mart, simply drop them off at the 112 Spring Street parking lot (rain or shine).  It will be a Covid-19 safe drop-off. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
