Shoppers Drug Mart and Always collab in Manitoba to end ‘period poverty’


Shoppers Drug Mart has announced a new partnership with the Manitoba government to make period products more accessible to students and adults in need across the province. Over the next three years, Shoppers Drug Mart, in partnership with Always, will donate nearly 10 million period products and 900 product dispensers to Manitoba’s school divisions, independent schools and social service agencies to help #EndPeriodPoverty.

“Inequitable access to period products, particularly for students, can lead to missed opportunities—school, work, and other activities—and creates barriers to success,” said Jeff Leger, president, Shoppers Drug Mart. “This donation will provide students in Manitoba with free access to period products, helping to more fully unlock their potential. We are proud to be a part of this initiative, and grateful to our stores, to Procter & Gamble, and to our customers for their support.”
