Dignity Matters is the only New England based non-profit organization that supplies feminine hygiene products and underwear to women and school girls living in homeless or low-income situations to help them stay healthy, regain self-confidence, and live with basic dignity.
Dignity Matters is filling one of the cracks in the system that hardly anybody realizes exists – homeless and critically poor women and girls in Massachusetts and Rhode Island DESPERATELY need tampons, pads, bras and panties.
There are almost 22,000 homeless women and school girls in Massachusetts alone. Every month, these women, often accompanied by their children, face the humiliating reality of no access to tampons or pads. Their dilemma of having to choose between buying food to survive or tampons is common.
From now through January 31, Amazing Things Arts Center is hosting a collection box: bring an item when you come to the show, or just when you’re driving by! Financial donations are also welcome online
