UMA Period Product Drive


We’re accepting period product donations for the whole month of October. As we serve a population of adolescent students, this is an ongoing need throughout the year.


This is a donation drive to make period products such as sanitary pads, tampons, menstrual cups, and new underwear more accessible to UMA students. These items will be made available through discreet space in restrooms at school and through confidential contact with select staff.

Ways to Help

  • Send Monetary Donations: Any amount (cash or check) can be turned in at the main school office.
  • Drop Off In-Kind Donations: You can donate new period products to Upper Mississippi Academy located at 19 E Exchange Street, St. Paul, MN 55101. Contact Alex Long ([email protected]) for more details.
  • Spread The Word – Share the news with your friends and inspire them to donate.
