Dignity Grows™ is an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford and supported by National Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federations of North America to provide individuals in need with essential personal hygiene products so they can attend school and work and participate in community life without interruption.

Every month, some of our neighbors feel a sense of helplessness and embarrassment because they lack basic necessities. These feelings of shame have consequences. Girls stay home from school during their periods and miss critical learning time. Women miss work, which can lead to lost wages. This further compounds the cycle of poverty.

For as little as $10, you can donate a Dignity Tote, which includes a one-month supply of sanitary products, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, and deodorant to a neighbor in need helping her to be more productive while safeguarding her dignity.

Thank you to those ladies who recently joined us for our last Dignity Tote packing party! Click here to check out the fun that was had.
