The purpose of Project Dignity of WNC is to provide feminine hygiene and related products to girls and women in Hendersonville and surrounding areas who are homeless, low-income, or victims of domestic abuse.

What We Do

Project Dignity of WNC Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to provide feminine hygiene products to women and girls in Hendersonville and surrounding areas who might be homeless, low-income, or victims of domestic abuse.


Why Should I Get Involved?

Did you know SNAP or Food Stamps do not allow the purchase of feminine hygiene products? Women and girls are often absent from work and school during their “time of the month” because they don’t have proper personal health products.

How You Can Help

Project Dignity of WNC provides feminine products to 36 agencies and 107 schools in Henderson, Buncombe, Polk, Rutherford and Transylvania counties. 
Project Dignity of WNC serves over 1900 women by providing 10,165 pads and 8,870 tampons per month.

We are pleased to announce that we were awarded a grant of $8,831.52 by the WNC Bridge Foundation (formerly CarePartners Foundation).
The grant provides coverage for exactly one year’s rent for the organization’s headquarters and distribution facility in Duncan Hill Center. From this facility Project Dignity of WNC coordinates the efforts of dozens of community volunteers who collect, organize, package, and deliver thousands of feminine hygiene products monthly. This distribution encourages good health, restores dignity, and increases productivity for women and girls throughout WNC who face the often unrecognized and unspoken challenge of simple access to these essential hygiene products.
We are grateful!

"Right now, 33 states have yet to eliminate the tampon tax, while items like doughnuts, gun-club memberships, amusement-park rides, and Viagra(except in Illinois) are exempt from sales tax... which begs the question: Why aren’t women’s health products deemed necessities and, instead, still subject to a sales tax? And why do women have to bear the burden of cost alone?"
