KCCSW donates period products to outreach programs

LĪHU‘E – The Kaua‘i County Committee on the Status of Women (KCCSW) held a special presentation Friday at the Līhu‘e Civic Center’s Mo‘ikeha Building, after selecting three outreach agencies to receive donated period product packets from the committee.

“The Kaua‘i Committee on the Status of Women unanimously agreed on the donation of the period product packets to selected agencies in the community who provide service to women and girls who are homeless,” said Edie Ignacio Neumiller, Kaua‘i Commissioner and Ex-Officio of the KCCSW. “Access to period products is essential for health and safety especially for women in need.”

KCCSW donated 46 period product packets each to Hale Opio Kaua‘i, Kaua‘i Economic Opportunity, and Family Life Center Kaua‘i. Each organization provides support services for women and youth through their programs and overall missions to address and serve the health and safety needs of our Kaua‘i community.

Representatives from each organization joined members of the KCCSW and Mayor Derek Kawakami during Friday’s ceremony.

“Mahalo to our Kaua‘i Committee on the Status of Women for caring and supporting women and girls in our community and being positive advocates through education and collaborative efforts as seen today with these three service organizations,” said Mayor Kawakami. “We are grateful to you all for the work you do and giving your time and resources to help those in need.”
