HONOLULU -

The Women’s Legislative Caucus has donated more than 100 Easter baskets to The Institute for Human Services for families in need.

Baskets were filled essential household items, including laundry soap, dishes and school supplies.

Officials say the items in the baskets will be a welcome gift for the families who are just starting off in a permanent home and transitioning out of homelessness.

“The Caucus has been doing these drives for about 10 years now,” said Sen. Roz Baker. “Community support really helps nonprofits like IHS. We’re so grateful to everyone who took the time to make these beautiful baskets and share aloha with those in need.”
