A simple donation of $5 allows us to prepare 2 feminine hygiene kits! Hundreds of these kits are distributed through our community partners free of charge to women in need!  


All donations ensure that underserved women and school-age girls are provided with much-needed resources, including education and feminine hygiene products. Imagine having to make the choice between a meal or a box of tampons. Imagine having to miss school or work because you have no means to manage your period. Imagine experiencing menstruation, pregnancy, or menopause without full comprehension of what is happening within your body and how you can best take care of yourself during these times. These are all very real scenarios for the women we serve, and your donation could truly make all the difference for a woman or girl in need!


In-kind donations of products and coupons are greatly appreciated! Product drives are welcome and encouraged. If you live in or near Grand Rapids Michigan, drop off your product donations at our drop-off sites listed below. No gift is too small!

Current needs include:

  • Maxi Pads
  • Ultra thin Pads

For your convenience, visit our Amazon Wishlist.

  • Host a Party with a Purpose - a small gathering in your home with close friends to raise awareness of our mission and collect feminine hygiene product donations
  • Conduct a donation drive in your place of work, school, church, etc. (This could be as simple as a donation box in the break room or bathroom!)
  • Volunteer with us!
  • “Like” and “Share”  Be a Rose's Facebook and Instagram pages to stay engaged in the conversation, show support of our cause, and challenge the stigma around menstruation

Postpartum Needs 

Postpartum bleeding is defined as the significant loss of blood following child birth. Women of vulnerable populations are often unable to access necessary products to manage their postpartum health and hygiene, as these products are not covered by WIC or Medicaid. Help us fill this gap by signing yourself or a group you belong to, up for our Roses for Postpartum Project and help us meet the postpartum needs of women in our city.

Contact us at info@bearose.org, Subject: Roses for Postpartum Project for more information.
