Hale Kipa’s Kauai office raised more than $250 to provide six families with dinners for the Thanksgiving holiday. Donations were collected throughout October and November. This is the second year the Kauai office has raised money to provide Thanksgiving dinners for Hale Kipa youth and their families, delivering a half-dozen meals in 2016.
The dinners each featured a turkey, fresh-baked bread, mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy and a pumpkin pie. Hale Kipa staff filled two shopping carts with the items, assembled each dinner in a take-home box, and delivered the meals to Hale Kipa youth and their family members.
Hale Kipa staff share their warmest mahalo to everyone who donated. If you would like to donate for future holiday meals, call Hale Kipa’s Kauai office at (808) 246-4898.
