The Hawaii United Okinawa Association (HUOA) is sponsoring a community service event on May 2 at the Paiolu Kaiaulu emergency shelter. The theme is to have a typical Okinawan heritage club picnic at the shelter. This will include games for the kids, Okinawan food, and donations for the families.
HUOA is asking for donations of personal items such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels, toiletries, tissue, disposable razors, shaving cream, toothbrushes, powdered laundry detergent, clean clothing for infants and children. Please note that due to the facility (no kitchen) and living quarters, food donations are not requested.
Donations may be left at the Waianae Legal Aid Office, located in room 8 of the Satellite City Hall (85-670 Farrington Hwy.), during business hours. Donations may also be left at the Honolulu Legal Aid Office, 924 Bethel St., during business hours.
For more information please contact Russ Awakuni through email at ruawaku@LASHAW.ORG.
