The Red Basket Project strives to ensure each period is met with products, despite personal or financial need.


A Matter of Dignity

For those who are homeless or those with insufficient financial resource​s, their period can be the most dreaded time of the month. 


Having minimal or no access to period products, one is forced to improvise or worse, go without. 


This is unacceptable and our goal is to make a permanent change in every community.

"No One Ever Asks"

Because no one ever asks, we assume there is no need. This is absolutely not the case. What we have found in our work is that the need is in fact tremendous.


We place period products in restrooms where those who are  living in poverty or homeless gather.


You do not need to ask-products are there, readily available. 

About Us

Basic Human Right

At The Red Basket Project we believe that access to period products is a basic human right. Having your period should not be a barrier to attending school, work or participating in any part of life.

With your donations, we supply Period Packs to the local Rescue Mission, The Dubuque Food Pantry, Dubuqu​e Community Middle and High Schools, Resources Unite, Operation New View  and countless other agencies in our community.  We also assist other communities in starting their own Red Basket Project.
