Project Pink is a student organization dedicated to providing feminine health and hygiene products to homeless women in the Detroit and Lansing areas. The organization was created in October 2017 by Michigan State University students Dominique Jackson and Sydni Singler.

“We realized that they’re so many women who lack the access to basic feminine care products. We realized that we should play our part and actually give back,” Jackson said.

According to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, lack of access to health care is a major issue impacting homeless women, with 73 percent of homeless individuals reporting at least one unmet health need.

“For women who need this support, just know that there are other women here trying to help you. You’re not on your own,” Singler said. “You never will be on your own.”
