KOKUA DAY July 2018

Wahine Leaders of Hawaii is excited to be celebrating our 5th year of supporting the keiki at Linapuni Elementary School located in the heart of Kuhio Park Terrace. This needs-based school has many children showing up at the beginning of the year with few or no school supplies. We are so grateful for your support in helping supply their needs.

This year our collections will look a little different than they have in the past. At our recent Staff and Teacher’s Appreciation Luncheon, the teachers shared that the kindergarten and first graders have started to bring their own supplies and they want to encourage this as a family responsibility. Therefore, we will only be supplying the 40 preschool students with all of their supplies.

Additionally, we will be providing the entire school with their most needed items, consisting of paper towels, Expo markers and hand soap. Money collected will go towards teacher gift cards to Fisher and other supply stores for additional necessities.

Your support in creating a Win-Win through generous donations is greatly appreciated!!
