Women’s Philanthropy Project Dignity Program

January 31, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta Women’s Philanthropy for an informative session featuring Project Dignity, our initiative dedicated to providing period products to those in need who might be homeless, low-income, or victims of domestic abuse. We will learn about the issues of period poverty through different lenses, advocacy organizations, and nonprofits who work with vulnerable groups.

During this program, you will participate in a panelist discussion on period poverty, learn from nonprofits in Atlanta who provide direct service to women in need, and have a chance to donate menstrual products to the cause. We highly encourage you to bring your friends, daughters, and granddaughters to this educational opportunity that affects women of all ages.

Help us fill a need in the community and register today.

Amazon Wishlist

At our Women’s Philanthropy events, we collect menstrual products to be distributed into the community to help those in need who may not have access to these products. While this is a no-cost event, please purchase menstrual products from the Amazon Wishlist or bring menstrual products with you to the event. The most needed menstrual product are pads. We appreciate your support!
