Why Should I Get Involved?

Did you know SNAP or Food Stamps do not allow the purchase of period products? Women and girls are often absent from work and school during their “time of the month” because they don’t have proper personal health products.

How You Can Help

Project Dignity of WNC provides period products to 55 agencies and 148 schools in Henderson, Buncombe, Polk, Transylvania, Rutherford, Madison, Haywood, Yancey, Avery and Mitchell counties.
 
Project Dignity of WNC serves over 1900 women by providing 14,380 tampons, 15,450 pads, and 5,534 liners per month.
