On the Spot fundraiser tonight

Posted By on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 10:06 AM

Snow got you down today? Beer will help! And so will helping out a good cause.

Tonight is an On the Spot fundraiser, which helps collect menstrual supplies for local schools to hand out to girls who find themselves without resources.

From their Facebook page, about the campaign:

"Imagine you are a seventh grade girl in foster care. Life is all sorts of awkward. For many local girls like this, some days are worse than awkward. For many girls in foster care or unstable family situations suddenly finding yourself in school, with your period, and WITHOUT supplies is an unfortunately regular occasion."

The fundraiser is tonight, from 6-8 p.m. at Nico's, 178 Pearl St., Bloomfield. There's a giant cookie table and silent auction. Entrance is $10 or $5 and a package of pads/tampons.
