Please Join Us: Crimson Kit Assembly/Open House11.19.2018
Thanks to so many of you who've already shared donations of period products that will be provided to People Serving People and Haven Housing to share with women experiencing homelessness or displacement due to domestic violence. We hope you will consider joining us on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. at our Edina location as we assemble all the items we have collected into "Crimson Kits." We will put the donations into individual kits containing the products needed by a woman for an average period. If you haven't donated already, please know that donations (e.g., pads, tampons, pantyliners, hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, underwear, chocolate) may be brought directly to this event. Please consider donating products and/or time to help women in need during this holiday season!

Crimson Kit Collection to take place throughout November10.22.2018
Throughout the month of November, Clinic Sofia will be collecting period products to provide to women experiencing homelessness or temporarily displaced from their homes.

The items will be assembled into individual “Crimson Kits” containing the resources needed for an average period. The kits will be brought to People Serving People and Haven Housing to distribute to the women these wonderful organizations serve. Items can be dropped off at Clinic Sofia's Edina or Maple Grove offices.
