A lack of menstrual supplies and other hygiene items has a detrimental effect on one’s quality of life, impeding daily activities such as attending school or work. Federal grant programs do not cover these essentials and they are not sufficiently supplied through food pantry donations. In anticipation of International Women’s Day, Federation’s Women of Impact will assemble Dignity Packs of menstrual and toiletry supplies to be given to those in need through Jewish Family Services and Mikveh Bess Israel.

Please join us as we launch the Dignity Project, helping to eliminate monthly barriers to education, employment and social connection.
