For the month of November Flirt Adult Store in Port Macquarie is supporting charity Share the Dignity by being a collection point for its 'It's in the Bag' campaign.
'It's in the Bag' campaign collects and distributes personal items such as sanitary products to homeless women in the area in the lead-up to Christmas.
Ellen Marquet from Flirt Adult Store on Horton Street said the store is acting as a collection point this month and is also offering discounts on products that will be donated to the charity.
"They really are after anything they believe would encourage homeless people to get back on their feet which they may need for personal care," she said.
"All the products go back to women in need in the local community."
Ms Marquet said the store often raises money for charities.
"In September we raised over three thousand dollars for prostate cancer," she said.
Share the Dignity is national charity which aims to solve period poverty for women and teens experiencing homelessness and domestic violence and is asking for donations as part of the 'It's in the Bag' Christmas appeal.
From Friday, November 22, Bunnings Port Macquarie will also be a collection point for the charity.
