Volunteers to pack bags with free hygiene products for Amherst Survival Center
HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – The Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts’ Women’s Philanthropy will be packing Dignity Grow Bags for the Amherst Survival Center on Tuesday.
According to a news release from the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts’ Women’s Philanthropy, the Dignity Grow Bags will be filled with a month’s worth of personal and menstrual hygiene products.
The reason for the Dignity Grow Bags is that more than 20 percent of those that are assigned female at birth in the United States suffer from period poverty, which means they lack the finances to purchase feminine hygiene products.
