The Rotary Club of Tryon was introduced to the work being done by Project Dignity of Western North Carolina during a presentation by the organization’s President, Barbara Morgan. Project Dignity provides feminine hygiene related products to girls and women in Hendersonville and surrounding areas who are homeless, low-income, or victims of domestic abuse.
Barbara told the Rotarians how the club began and how their work has expanded to help girls and women in Polk County. Project Dignity has worked closely with Thermal Belt Outreach for years to ensure their clients have the feminine hygiene products they need to be healthy. Barbara went on to explain how Project Dignity has expanded into all of the schools in Polk County to ensure every girl has the products they need. Making sure the girls are prepared for their period helps them stay in school.
Rotarian George Alley, of Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry, brought Project Dignity of WNC President Barbara Morgan to the meeting where she was accompanied by two of the organization’s board members Doug Rostic and Tom Morgan.
