Doing more for kids in-need, collaborating to make a difference...

We are thrilled to have Dignity Matters as a critical partner in serving our most vulnerable students. Access to feminine products has become a critical issue. This survey conducted by Always says it all:

“The most recent Always Confidence & Puberty Survey reveals that nearly one in five American girls have either left school early or missed school entirely because they did not have access to period products. At puberty, a girl’s confidence plummets, with the onset of menstruation marking the lowest moment for many girls. But the drop in confidence is so much worse for girls that lack access to period protection. It can force her to miss out on important confidence-building activities in the classroom, on the field, in extra-curricular school programs, and limit her potential far beyond puberty. While lack of access to period products is typically associated with girls in other countries, period poverty isn’t just someone else’s problem. It’s happening right here in North America.”

Disadvantaged children and their parents can not afford these necessities, and unlike other necessities, pads and tampons are not covered by Food Stamps (SNAP Benefits) and not provided by most public schools. Dignity Matters is supporting 41 of our closets and over 7,000 students, ensuring ongoing access to these critical necessities.

Dignity Matters is based in Framingham, MA, and oversees operations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Georgia. Learn more about this incredible organization: www.dignity-matters.org
