Project Dignity is a nonprofit on a mission to provide period products to those in need in Western North Carolina who might be homeless, low-income, or victims of domestic abuse.

1 in 5 girls in the US have missed school because they cannot afford period protection.

We solicit donations of period products and financial support from community organizations, individuals, and foundations, and provide product drop off locations.  We distribute to schools, public housing agencies, food pantries, and social service agencies on a monthly schedule.  
Project Dignity communicates frequently with our “customers” to ensure we are meeting the needs of the women and girls we serve.

Project Dignity of Western North Carolina, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3).

Why We Do What We Do

Millions of women in the United States find it tough to pull together funds to pay bills and buy groceries.  Since menstrual products are not convered by food assistance programs, there isn’t always enough left over for a $7 box of tampons or pads.  Women resort to using rags, socks, or even plastic bags.

Beyond a critical health problem, it’s upsetting – amd even shocking – that every woman in America doesn’t have access to these products.
