For the month of April, please join us in collecting items for Dignity Matters, a non-profit organization that supplies feminine hygiene products and undergarments to women in severe hardship, in order to help them stay healthy, regain self-confidence, and live with basic dignity. Feminine hygiene products, underpants and bras are rarely donated to charities, food stamps do not cover them, asking strangers for sanitary products can be humiliating, and most homeless shelters, in spite of their best efforts, simply cannot cope with the demand. It leaves homeless women alone - in what amounts to a monthly crisis.
This organization assists women in need in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and is in desperate need of:
1. Feminine hygiene products: tampons and sanitary napkins. Opened tampon or pad boxes are also welcome as long as individual products are sealed. There is a preference for super absorbency strength.
2. Female underpants: new and with tags. Any brand, size or color.
3. Bras: both new and gently used. All sizes and styles are needed, including underwire bras, sports bras, nursing bras, maternity bras, shapewear, crop top style etc.. Nursing bras are very sought after.

Please bring your donations the next time you visit us and place them in the blue Dignity Matters bin.
Thank you for your support of this amazing organization!
