On the Spot at Industry Public House

It’s time for another On the Spot fundraiser!

Girls in Allegheny County are in continued need of your support to provide necessary menstrual supplies.Too many girls just don’t have access, too many girls skip school or spend days nervous preoccupied when they should be learning. Donate either $5 and a package of supplies (pads preferred) or $10 to make those awkward teenage years a lot less embarrasing for local ladies (and guys…yes, we collect hygiene products for young men, too!)

Back to School Bash!

Our Back to School Bash is one week from today! Please share and help girls who find themselves unsupplied and ‘on the spot.’ The new school year means many local girls are in desperate need of feminine hygiene products. School employees are providing supplies for girls out of their own pocket when faced with the overwhelming need for such help.

Join us and help Planned Parenthood stock up on much needed supplies for the new school year!

Party with Pizza + Pads

Menstrual Supplies and Football

We have to apologize. It’s been far too long since we’ve filled your bellies with delicious baked goods while taking your money and menstrual supplies. And we’re out of supplies!

School is back in session. Girls are back in our schools, trying to get learn, but struggling to focus as they do not have access to the menstrual supplies they need and deserve. So come party with us as we gather money and supplies to help give these girls the opportunity to focus on their education.

The next party will be in lovely Bloomfield:

Celebrating Women’s History Month

It’s Women’s History Month and we’ve been busy here at On the Spot partnering up with other organizations to help make sure the girls and women of Allegheny County have access to menstrual products!

We’re working with Chatham’s Feminist Activists Creating Equality (F.A.C.E.), an amazing student group dedicated to social justice. They will be collecting menstrual supplies on Chatham’s campus the week of March 26th-30th! Stop by Chatham’s Eddy Theatre (104 Woodland Road, Pittsburgh, PA) at 7 p.m. on March 31st for the Vagina Monologues to watch their great production and donate menstrual supplies. They will also be collecting monetary donations for Pittsburgh Action Against Rape.

We will also be working with the Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project to collect supplies and tote bags  in March. Donate a tote bag of menstrual supplies at any of these drop off spots.

Help us celebrate Women’s History by donating menstrual supplies to Allegheny County’s women and girls!

Let’s get ready to party!

We know you’ve been hoarding extra packages of pads and tampons, anxiously awaiting the next On the Spot party.

We’ll guess what? We’re ready to party with you again!

November 11th, 6-8:30pm at Howlers (4509 Liberty Avenue, Bloomfield)

We’re currently hard at work rounding up some awesome raffle prizes for an all-local auction and deciding what kind of lovely baked goods to produce for the cookie table! Yes, there will be baklava. There will be boozed up cupcakes. There may even be boozy whoopie pies.

As always, it’ll cost you $5 and a package of menstrual supplies or $10 to gain access to gorge yourself at the cookie table. We’ll also hassle you throughout the night to buy your 50/50 raffle tickets and raffle tickets.

If you have anything you’d like to donate to the auction or cookie table, send us an email at pghonthespot@gmail.com!
