RACKET is an organization dedicated to eliminating period shame and helping people at an economic disadvantage gain access to menstrual hygiene products.
RACKET SUPPLIES FOR THE BORDER
Racket’s most recent menstrual hygiene product donation has gone to support menstruators on the border of Arizona and Mexico.
Want to help?
Cruzando Fronteras (Crossing Borders) is an initiative to send aid to families held in shelters in Mexico while awaiting movement on their US immigration and asylum petitions.
Supplies can be sent directly (through Amazon or other shipping services) to:
Deacon Rodger Babnew, Jr.
St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church
969 West Country Club Drive
Nogales, AZ 85621-3985
All menstrual hygiene products are needed, including maxi pads, tampons, and panty liners. (In Racket’s experience, it’s best to be sure that the products are individually wrapped, in case the boxes need to be split up or broken down to travel.)
3RD ANUAL BROADWAY COMMUNITY DRIVE
RACKET just concluded our 3rd annual Broadway community menstrual hygiene product drive with incredible results!
This year, we were supported by the casts, crews, orchestras, and fans of 24 shows from the Broadway and Off-Broadway Theatre community: Aladdin, Anastasia, The Band’s Visit, Beautiful, The Cher Show, Frozen, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Head Over Heels, King Kong, Kinky Boots, Mean Girls, My Fair Lady, Once On This Island, The Play That Goes Wrong, Pretty Woman, The Prom, School of Rock, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, To Kill a Mockingbird, Waitress, The Waverly Gallery, and Wicked!
Together we were able to collect over 20,000 menstrual hygiene products and assembled over 700 kits for transient menstruators in need! This year our products will all go to support Native Health, a community health and wellness center providing holistic, patient-centered, culturally sensitive health and wellness services to urban American Indians and Alaska Natives.
A very special thank you is owed to the MFA Products of Design at the School of Visual Arts for hosting our assembly in their wonderful space!
