Dignity Grows Associate @ Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford

Dignity Grows Associate

Dignity GrowsTM empowers our neighbors in need by providing menstrual and hygiene supplies for every body that needs them. We remove obstacles to better self-esteem and health by providing personal hygiene essentials each and every month. Dignity Grows mobilizes volunteers to organize, assemble, and distribute free, reusable zipper-top totes filled with a month's supply of soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste, along with menstrual products or shaving cream and razor kits. Federal grant programs don't cover these items, and people often don't think to donate them to food pantries.

• Provide on-site product management including moving supplies, catalogu-ing and tracking inventory, accepting shipments, and maintaining relation-ships with community partners offering storage facilities

• Manage program-related paperwork, inventory, purchasing, and distribu-tion
• Record and track data and trends related to the project including, but not limited to: volunteer participation, distribution metrics, product costs and availability
• Track and adhere to budget by monitoring expenses and donations
