Mother's Week

Mother's Week

HAWA is celebrating Mothers all week long from Monday, May 2, 2022 – Saturday, May 7, 2022!

May is a month that focuses on celebrating mothers and in HAWA’s line of work we understand that many mothers in our Southeast Asian community do not have access to basic needs resources.

So every day of the week, HAWA will be holding events that community members can partake in celebrating Mothers with HAWA.

May 2
Diaper Drop off Day
We partner with the Milwaukee Diaper Mission to stock our community closet with diapers and period kits every month. In order to continue providing these families with basic necessities, HAWA needs your help!

Anyone who drops off any amount of diaper donations will be able to leave a note of encouragement and love for the women and mothers who receive diapers from our community closet.

All diaper & monetary donations will be donated to our partner organization, The Milwaukee Diaper Mission.
