Indian Island School
Old Town, Maine
In October 2021 the Alliance for Period Supplies and U by Kotex®, approached us with a generous offer – large quantities of tampons that, for obscure reasons, could be donated to students and community members living in Maine, not elsewhere. We jumped at the opportunity, and, with the help of Indian Island School counselor Tracey Nute, we were able to accept enough tampons to fulfill the need of Indian Island students and multiple surrounding communities. We also began supplying Indian Island School students with pads, liners, cotton underwear and puberty education materials.
