In partnership with I Support the Girls (https://isupportthegirls.org) and in honor of Mother’s Day, Temple Beth David of the South Shore, located at 1060 Randolph St. in Canton, is reaching out to the community to request donations.

I Support the Girls collects and distributes essential items, including bras, underwear, and feminine hygiene products, for the dignity of women who are experiencing homelessness, impoverishment, or distress.

The community is encouraged to bring these items to Temple Beth David through May 18: new or gently used bras (larger sizes preferred); nursing pads (new and individually sealed or in a sealed box); menstrual cups (new and individually sealed or in a sealed box); new or wrapped super tampons (full boxes or individually sealed); new or wrapped pantyliners (full boxes or individually sealed); and new underwear with tag still attached (no thongs).

If the Temple is not open, leave the items in plastic bags by the front door. If you wish to order items for delivery, use this address: Temple Beth David of the South Shore, c/o Tikkun Olam Committee. 1060 Randolph St., Canton, MA 02021

The goal is to collect 100 bras and 1,000 feminine care products. Questions should be directed to the Temple office at 781-828-2275 or office@templebethdavid.com
