The Women’s Institute of P.E.I. recently wrapped up its fifth annual Taking Care of Women’s Business campaign.
Monetary donations and more than 1,000 individual donations of feminine hygiene products were collected and distributed to food banks across the Island.
Donations were collected in February. Murphy’s Pharmacies also matched $500 worth of donations of their private label brand.
“Not being able to afford feminine hygiene products is a big issue here,’’ said Farida Chishti, a board member with the Women’s Institute of P.E.I. “We’re happy to help in any way possible and we’re so appreciative of the support P.E.I. has given us.’’
