Donations/Volunteers Needed For Toys for Tots - Dec 6, 4-6pm, Waianae Civic Center

From: Panzo Michael (
Subject: Toys for Tots at Paiolu Kaiaulu (Waianae Civic Center Emergeny Shelter) on December 06, 2008, 4 - 6pm

Dear Maile,

I would really appreciate if you could assist us. Donations are desperately needed, not to mention the help from individuals who might be able to make this a memorable nite for the children, such as entertainers, be it magicians, balloon blowers or musicians. We are also looking to get a large inflatable jumper the children could play in, game booths would work well.......

Any help would be appreciated, but time is short -- advice or possible contact leads would be welcomed. Please forward my name and number to those individuals interested in donating their time, games, rides, monetary donations, talents....anything, to me. My cell number is 457-6955.

Thank you again,
Michael Panzo

Additional Information from Paiolu Kaiaulu re: the 12/6/08 Toys for Tots Event:

Aloha Mr. Panzo, Rita asked me to update you with the count for adult and staff members by gender for our facility. The figures below are accurate as of today, November 17th; however, we have a few staff vacancies which need to be filled, and the client numbers will also fluctuate by December 6th. For instance, we have five room vacancies which more than likely will be filled this week, which will subsequently change our count for adult clients as well as for children. Our numbers are as follows:

Adult Clients: Female: 91, Male: 75
Staff Members: Female: 20, Male: 14

Sincere thanks for your interest in helping to make the holidays more special for our clients. Please do not hesitate to contact either Rita or myself if you have any questions.
