PUBLIC: Red Alert! Mini Drive + Happy Hour

  • Black Sheep 223 East Walnut Street Des Moines, IA, 50309 United States (map)

In collaboration with Des Moines Area Religious Council's Spring Into Action week, DSM Girl Gang will be hosting a happy hour at our new favorite venue, Black Sheep DSM!

We're calling this even a Red Alert! Mini Drive! We'll be collecting donations of feminine products (or monitary) for DMARC to distribute through their 12 food Pantries across the state.

Bring some tampons or bring some cash, WEAR RED at this crimson themed happy hour! ❤️

In September 2016, the DSM Girl Gang partnered with DMARC to collect over 51k feminie products. These items were distrubuted to 6 local shelters and services. 

On average, a woman needs about 250 tampons or pads each year, but many lack access to these basic care items. Infrequent changing of tampons or pads is unhealthy, unsanitary and unsafe. Not having access to these products is unthinkable. Shelters and services are in CONSTANT need when it comes to female care goods. DMARC touches the lives of over 40k individuals each year, and we want to ensure that they always have a supply of these necessary items.
