Our Approach:

Providing free menstrual and comprehensive hygiene products to neighbors in need in a manner that honors an individual’s dignity.

Dignity Grows is the national provider of free comprehensive hygiene essentials paired with period products and distributed in a discreet fashion.

Dignity Grows launched nationally in the fall of 2020. The Jewish Federations of North America and National Women’s Philanthropy offered an initial springboard, designating Dignity Grows as an initiative for their constituents. Subsequent chapter expansion welcomes social service organizations of all religious, cultural or other affiliations.

Dignity Grows Totes

Each Dignity Grows Tote is filled with a full-month supply of hygiene products and period necessities. The Totes are distributed through partner social service agencies that identify the need among their unique populations.

Dignity Grows Totes are made possible through donated time and funds, uniting volunteers of all genders and generations to support our neighbors in need. It’s the little things that make a big difference.

Each Dignity Grows Tote contains 6 comprehensive hygiene products and 2 menstrual hygiene necessities, packed in a discreet, reusable shoulder bag.
