SYL on Hawaii News Now

Mahalo to Hawaii News Now for supporting our Annual School Supply Drive. Last year we distributed over 1500 school supply kits to homeless keiki throughout Oahu and hope to do the same amount this year or even more. We believe that all children in our community should be provided adequate tools, resources and support to succeed in school. Our goal is to ensure that students are prepared for kindergarten, meet reading proficiency guidelines, transition successfully into middle school, graduate from high school on time and successfully enter college or the workforce.
