The local Hospital Employees Union got behind the United Way’s Period Promise campaign in a big way this spring. The group gathered period product donations this spring and delivered several giant boxes to the United Way offices. The products were delivered to the very appreciative H.O.P.E. Outreach and KARIS programs to distribute to their clients.
