Period Promise Northumberland invites you to complete the Menstruation in the Community Survey

This Menstrual Hygiene Day, Period Promise Northumberland wants to hear from you.

Period Promise Northumberland is asking community members to anonymously share how period poverty impacts their lives in order to get a better understanding of menstruation and equitable access to menstrual products in Northumberland County.

To complete the survey, please visit:

The survey is 26 questions and should take approximately 5-7 minutes to complete. This is a completely confidential, community survey that aims to understand period poverty locally. The data collected will be used to form a report on period poverty and equitable access in Northumberland County. No identifying information will be shared. The deadline to complete this survey is by the end of the day on Thursday, June 30, 2022.

Completing the Menstruation in the Community survey is just one way community members can participate in Period Promise Northumberland’s community-wide collection campaign. From May 13 to June 3, Northumberland County residents are asked to donate menstrual hygiene products, make a financial donation, or organize their own Period Promise collection campaign to help individuals, families, and non-profit organizations who struggle to afford these products each month.

The Period Promise campaign, a local partnership of Northumberland United Way and Thrive Northumberland, aims to address the issue of period poverty in the community while advocating for social change. This year, more than 12,000 products were supplied to individuals, families, and non-profits locally, making an incredible difference in the lives of people who do not have access to the products they need.
