Volunteer Opportunities


start a chapter with the period purse

Do you live in a city where TPP has no chapter? If you're interested in launching a chapter local to you, we will help you every step of the way. Just one or two "blitzes" a year can make a huge impact in the lives of menstruators in your town.

For more information on becoming a Chapter Leader, please visit the Chapters' page.

Email our Chapter Admin for more details.


Teachers and students- this one's for you! From middle schools to post secondary, schools are the perfect place to start a squad for The Period Purse. Hold a period product drive, host an online fundraiser, or get educated about periods. We will support you every step of the way, including sharing a how-to handbook with tips for forming your own Menstruation Nation group.

More about hosting a product/ online drive email our Menstruation Nation Coordinator.

Want to hear what virtual presentations we can give your group, email our Educational Coordinator.

Mini Drives

the period purse mini drives

The Period Purse was built from the grassroots up by small groups of passionate individuals. Want to do a mini drive with your colleagues, friends, or book club? Help out financially or with in-kind donations. Collect $15 each to support one menstruator through an online fundraiser. Or collect new, unopened period products and have one of your team drop it off at our storage unit in Etobicoke or your closest food bank.

Email our Mini Drive Coordinator for more information!

Storage Helpers

packers and oganizers

We are accepting 1-2 volunteers at a time into our Etobicoke storage unit, following strict COVID-19 protocols. Please contact our Storage Coordinator for more information and get your name added to our Storage Helper list.

Home Kits

The period purse volunteer drivers

We need ongoing volunteers to pack period packs at home! This would involve doing a contactless pick up from our storage unit in Etobicoke, packing period packs at your house, and then delivering them to a shelter near you. To be put on our Home Packers list, please contact our Storage Coordinator.
