EmpowerHer Provides Aid to Homeless Women

Service to others is a cornerstone of the student learning experience at B-CU. EmpowerHer, a community service initiative at Bethune-Cookman University, partnered with the She’s Covered Program of Daytona Beach to send feminine hygiene projects to Kingston, Jamaica for an upcoming mission trip. Students, faculty and staff shared statistical research via social media regarding the feminine hygiene needs of women who are homeless.  And in just two days, the organization received nearly 2,000 products that will be used to create care packages for women in Kingston. Additional products will be distributed locally for homeless women in the Daytona Beach community. 

"We are grateful to everyone who donated, helping us to make an impact through community service,” said Tasha Andrews, Coordinator of Student Organizations and Programming.
