For over 50 years, Transition Projects has delivered life-saving and life-changing assistance to some of Portland’s most vulnerable residents.
The Mission of Dignity Grows™ is to empower our neighbors in need by providing free menstrual and basic hygiene supplies that allow them to engage in
Donate A Tote!
A $10 donation will buy a tote filled with a month’s worth of hygiene supplies, including three packages of menstrual products.
Did you know every month, many of our low-income neighbors struggle to afford menstrual products, often having to choose between buying food or essential hygiene supplies. This lack of access to basic hygiene needs may make menstruators feel helpless or embarrassed, cause them to miss school or work, and put their health at risk.
Menstrual hygiene supplies are not covered by SNAP, WIC or other government programs and are rarely available at food pantries. Fortunately, Oregon passed the Menstrual Dignity Act in 2021, making period products available and free in all Oregon public schools, deeming them as necessary as toilet paper. However, these basic supplies may not be available at home.
Attend a packing party, where we assemble the totes that go to our neighbors in need!
