The Red Basket Project Awarded DRA Core Grant

The Red Basket Project is the grateful recipient of a DRA Core Grant in the amount of $10,000 to help build the nonprofit’s capacity for service through community engagement. Established in 2016, The Red Basket Project strives to ensure each period is met with products, especially in cases of personal or financial need.

Since 2016, the Red Basket Project has distributed over 48,000 period packs to the Dubuque community at multiple distribution sites including the Dubuque Rescue Mission, Resources Unite, Crescent Community Health Center, Multicultural Family Center, Dubuque Food Pantry, HACAP, and more. Period packs include supplies for one to two monthly cycles, discreetly packaged to provide support for those who menstruate to do so hygienically and with dignity.
