Tomorrow is first ever Tampon Tuesday in Niagara

Tomorrow is Tampon Tuesday, a day to help women living in poverty who struggle to buy feminine hygiene products.

The United Way of St. Catharines in partnership with Bell Media  is sponsoring an event  in support of the initiative at Romby's Tavern and Smokehouse on Lake Street

Local residents are invited to attend for a night of socializing and networking starting at 5:30 until 8:00.

Participants are asked to bring along a donations of unopened feminine hygiene products that will be given to local shelters, food banks and other organizations that deal with women in crisis.

The United Way says buying monthly products is an even bigger challenge for women who are homeless.
