Change was the operative word for the Assistance League of Hawaii this past year with the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic. Making a profound difference in the lives of disadvantaged children in Hawaii is their fundamental mission and Assistance League volunteers continued to serve the local community by reinventing ways they could provide help from a distance.
This year the Assistance League of Hawaii provided over 17,000 uniform shirts for students across the islands. Although their literacy program was suspended, volunteers helped to purchase and give books to students at Pu’uhale School at Christmas. In addition, Assistance League volunteers provided over 300 Malama Bears for children in traumatic situations and also helped 445 new parents in need of baby layettes.
When you donate to a participating charity like Assistance League of Hawaii through the Aloha for Hawaii Charities campaign through January 19, 2022 (4 pm HST), that charity will receive 100% of your donation plus a bonus boost from a funding pool generated by Friends of Hawaii Charities from the 2022 Sony Open in Hawaii. Please make a gift today and help Hawaii's charities look forward to a hau'oli makahiki hou (happy new year)!
