Project Dignity of Western North Carolina is pleased to announce it has been awarded a grant of $15,000 by the Community Foundation of Henderson County.
According to Project Dignity founder Barb Morgan, the grant will be used to provide feminine products through the schools and local service agencies to women and girls in Buncombe and Henderson counties who are homeless, low-income, or domestic abuse victims.
“Our organization is happy to know that girls in middle and high school can now focus on their education rather than worrying about how they might obtain feminine products. The grant from the Community Foundation will give us additional resources that guarantee enough product to keep the girls and women adequately supplied and perhaps even expand our outreach,” stated Morgan.
Project Dignity of Western North Carolina was founded in early 2017 and has served hundreds of women on a monthly basis in Henderson and Buncombe counties.
Community Foundation of Henderson County, founded in 1982, supports charitable programs in the greater Henderson County area.
