Dignity. Access. Period.
The Asheville Period Project provides free feminine hygiene items to
any woman in need. We serve sex workers, women housed into poverty,
homeless women, domestic abuse survivors and anyone in between. The
“Period Packs” that we distribute to homeless women have everything
they need to manage their period that month. The packs contain
tampons, pads, feminine wipes, disposable bags, condoms and a
health/safety info sheet.
Feminine hygiene items are expensive and not available for purchase
through SNAP (food stamp) funds. Women are often caught shoplifting
these items. We provide feminine hygiene items for free and hope to
alleviate negative stigma surrounding menstruation by empowering
women and giving them access to hygiene items and support.
Thank you so much for your interest in the Asheville Period Project.
Our thanks to you for supporting the Asheville Period Project isn’t as
important as the gratitude of the many women who have received the
feminine hygiene products that are distributed for free.
The Asheville Period Project is a 100% volunteer powered organization.
