ELIZABETH, NJ - The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders has announced a free yoga and women’s wellness event to be held in celebration of the 2018 International Day of Peace on Friday evening, September 21, at the Warinanco Sports Center in Union County’s Warinanco Park.

As a suggested donation, participants are invited to bring a box or bag of feminine hygiene products. The donations will be given to the organization “Girls Helping Girls. Period,” in support of women in need.

“This event is an opportunity for women in Union County to connect with their peers, recharge their energy for the fall season, and raise awareness that many women and girls struggle to afford basic necessities that are often taken for granted, here in the U.S. and around the world,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados.
