Pregnancy Test Dispensers - Now Available!

Pregnancy Test Dispenser

Through our Think Before You Drink Initiative we are offering Pregnancy Test Dispensers for installation in public restrooms. The first dispenser was installed in Pub 500 in Mankato, MN on July 19, 2012. These dispensers give the public a chance to solve a problem (FASD) that's actually 100 percent preventable. The dispensers do not require cash, just swipe a credit card and remove a pregnancy test.

For more information go to our Pregnancy Test Dispenser page.
