“Do something for someone who can never repay you. It feels good”.
Dignity Matters welcomes its first Corporate Partner – Shorelight Education.
Make Dignity Matters part of your 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility too! How does the program work?
It is simple, but effective. Dignity Matters, a Boston based nonprofit, organizes a permanent collection point within your office (for example in your mother’s room or a bathroom) where women can easily donate feminine hygiene products and underwear for local women in severe hardship. Indeed, there are thousands of homeless women in Massachusetts who cannot afford or readily access these necessities. Food stamps do not cover feminine hygiene products, people rarely donate them to charities, and shelters cannot cope with the demand for them. Having limited, or no access to female sanitary products leaves many women alone – in what amounts to monthly crisis.
We strive to create a ‘buy one, give one’ mentality: when purchasing their own feminine hygiene products each month, women spend few more dollars and purchase an additional item which they can simply drop off at work, in a designated Dignity Matters box. We also collect new and gently used bras which can be donated in the same box as the feminine hygiene products. Bras are DESPERATELY needed, yet rarely donated items.
When the box is full, we collect it and deliver it to a local homeless shelter or a food pantry. After the delivery, we update your company as to where exactly your donations went, to show your employees the IMPACT their generosity has on the lives of women in need.
The partnership program is FREE for your company – we cover the cost to pick up the donated items and deliver them to a local shelter. We also add you to the partnership program list on our website and Facebook.
