We’re collecting for Helping Hands Hawai'i® Ready to Lean from May 28 - June 30. 

The Ready to Learn program focuses on the needs of school-aged students from grades K to 12. Initially founded in 1998 in partnership with U.S. Senator Daniel and Maggie Inouye, its purpose is to ensure that low-income and homeless students throughout Hawaii have school supplies for their education. In 2005, Helping Hands Hawai‘i assumed statewide administration of this initiative, and together with community partners, assist approximately 5,000 students each year. Due to the challenges caused by the pandemic, more help is needed.

Please join us by dropping off your donation at one of our following retailers:
