About Us

At the Red Basket Project, we work to ensure that every person in our community has access to period products when they lack the funds necessary to purchase.


What does one do when they can't afford tampons or pads? They improvise, or worse, go without. Middle and high schoolers are forced to stay home from school and women stay home from work.

The Red Basket Project is a 501(c)3 organization, so all donations are tax deductible.
