Easter came a few days early for IHS clients

Hawaii's bi-partisan Women's Legislative Caucus, spearheaded by Rep. Marilyn Lee and her office staff, organized an Easter Basket fundraising drive to collect goodies and useful products for the clients of the Institute for Human Services (IHS). Woven baskets, plastic storage boxes and even bundles of toilet paper wrapped in colorful gift wrap adorned the chamber entrance of the Capitol. House and Senate members filled the baskets with items such as toiletries, hygiene products, candy, clothes and snacks.
Thanks to the generosity of state lawmakers and legislative staff, IHS clients will have 223 baskets to open!
