The Mothers’ Day Project (co-sponsored with Hawaii Women Lawyers)

Gift Bags for the Mothers' Day Project

Since 2000, HWLF has been a co-sponsor along with Hawaii Women Lawyers in the Mothers’ Day Project, in which new cosmetics and toiletries are donated, collected, sorted, and placed into gift bags for disadvantaged children to give to their mothers or other important women in their lives on Mothers’ Day. The project has increased in size, from 100 goodie bags the first year to almost 2000 in 2010 (see photo below), and has received the Public Service Award from the National Conference of Women’s Bar Associations in 2009.
