A special event with Dignity Grows and The Bushnell


Over 35% of Americans cannot afford monthly menstrual hygiene necessities, resulting in chronic absenteeism, job loss and health issues.

Dignity Grows is here to make a difference in Hartford and beyond…

Based in Hartford, Dignity Grows is the national nonprofit leader in the fight against ‘Period Poverty,’ a debilitating, often overlooked form of health inequity. The Dignity Grows Hartford Chapter provides free menstrual and comprehensive hygiene necessities for those in need. Annually, our signature Dignity Grows Totes – each containing a full month supply of 8 essential items, including 2 packages of period products – empower tens of thousands of neighbors across the region.

The Dignity Grows Hartford Chapter is the penultimate source for supporting Connecticut neighbors in need of hygiene supplies to live their lives free from interruption and burden.
