2018 Annual School Supply Drive for Homeless Keiki

From June 15th to July 16th, SYL, Women United and Hawaii Cares will be hosting school supply drives for our local homeless keiki’s upcoming school year.


You too can host your own school supply drive within your company!


Simply follow these four steps and be a part of a movement to ensure that all of our keiki have the resources to succeed in the next school year.  Thank you so much!


  • Step 1:  Download and print the flyer.
  • Step 2:  Post the flyer in a common area with a box.
  • Step 3:  Fill the box with the most needed school supplies.
  • Step 4:  At the end of the drive, pack up your school supplies and deliver them to Aloha United Way during work hours.


Aloha United Way Address:  200 N Vineyard Blvd # 700, Honolulu, HI 96817

If you don’t want to do a drive, you can also donate supplies online!

School supplies can be an added expense for those who are struggling to afford basic food and housing.

For $30 you can purchase either an Elementary School Kit or an Intermediate/High School kit for a child in need.


Each year, thanks to the generosity of individuals, organizations and partners, ALICE individuals and families and homeless youth receive the necessary tools to excel in their current and future educational careers.

Whether a pencil or pen or a folder or two, every bit counts. A small act of kindess has a huge impact on those individuals who receive them.

Your commitment to making our community a better place gives the children of O’ahu experiencing the difficulties of homelessness the best chance to succeed in life.


Each Elementary School Kit includes: 1 backpack, 2 folders, 2 notebooks, 1 eraser, pens, pencils, crayons, colored markers, glue and 1 glue stick.


Each Intermediate/High School Kit includes: 1 backpack, 1 binder, 2 folders, 2 notebooks, pens, pencils, highlighters, folder paper and 1 scientific calculator.
