Giving Back: Feminine Care Product Drive


The purpose of our Southwest Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) is to deliver value by organizing programs and events that recognize and celebrate the unique identity of our Employees. This value is not only found in networking and professional development but also in supporting the diverse communities we serve. Understanding the importance of community involvement, our Corporate Responsibility Team donated $2,500 to each of our ERGs to support the organizations that matter most to them.

During Women’s History Month in March, our Out & Proud@SWA and Women@SWA ERGs hosted a Feminine Care Product Drive in the spirit of giving back. Throughout the month, Employees were encouraged to donate feminine products to support women’s shelters throughout the United States. Donation boxes were shared at our Headquarters location as well as many of our airport locations. Employees also had the option to purchase items via an Amazon Wishlist.

Thanks to the generosity of our Employees, we received over 18,000 individual items, including feminine products, toiletries, and socks. These items will be donated to multiple women’s organizations, including Austin Street Center, Union Rescue Mission, Shared Housing Center, Inc., and the USO. A special thanks to our Provisioning Team, who provided boxes for the drive, as well as our vendor Bunzl USA, who donated more than 4,000 feminine products. The drive's success shows that our Employee Resources Groups are another great way to get involved and put your Heart in Action through service to others.
