The Dignity Project

Heart for Monroe’s “The Dignity Project” is a new initiative focused on tackling period poverty in Union County. Period poverty is a pervasive issue defined as women’s lack of access to period products, hygiene facilities such as bathrooms, and education about their menstrual cycle. Through The Dignity Project, Heart for Monroe will collect menstrual hygiene items to distribute to women and girls in need in Union County as well as create educational programs to educate people about the menstrual cycle to combat the stigma surrounding it. 

Donations can be dropped off at The Closet in downtown Monroe or at the Collaborative for the Common Good, located in Austin Auditorium on Wingate University’s campus. 

What we want to provide

Menstrual Hygiene Items

Educational Programs

Volunteers will be needed to put together hygiene kits as well as distribute them to those in need. Volunteers can also write encouraging notes to go in the hygiene kits!
