Slater Announces Feminine Hygiene Drive with Putnam CAP

Following a successful Diaper Drive in March, Assemblyman Matt Slater (R,C-Yorktown) is happy to be partnering with Putnam CAP again to provide much-needed feminine hygiene products to their clients throughout Putnam County. Feminine hygiene products cannot be purchased using SNAP benefits and are always in high demand. Drop-off locations will be located throughout the 94th Assembly District and available from May 1 through May 31.

“We appreciate the leadership of all the towns in the 94th Assembly District that are providing drop-off locations, making it quick and accessible for all residents to drop off donations throughout the month of May. I strongly encourage those who are able to make donations and help support those struggling to afford basic care products,” said Slater.

“Feminine hygiene products are necessities, not luxuries. We are grateful for Assemblyman Slater's support in ensuring equitable access to these products, as it reduces the economic burden placed on women and enables them to allocate those resources to other basic needs,” said Marissa O’Leary, Director of Putnam Community Action Partnership.
