October is National Make a Difference Month.We participate and our hours count towards your goals.

Aloha
Project Hawai'i, Inc is a nonprofit organization run 100% by volunteers and solely supported by public donations to enhance the lives of homeless keiki. We help them succeed and escape their cycle of poverty. We have also chosen to make our Make a Difference day to be about stopping the child abuse cycle in the lives of homeless children. We are so happy you have choosen to make a difference in so many ways by volunteering for 3 hours.
We are an official #makeadifferenceday #nonprofit and will be hosting events across the island of O'ahu for the 3 days during this event.
We invite the community and teen or school groups who wish to participate (school hours, club hours, etc all count)
Your 3 hours will help make a difference in the lives of our homeless keiki and help them keep clean and healthy for the winter months ahead. These children live in extreme poverty without running water or electricity. They are not provided a daily meal and never know when they will have to pack up and leave their belongs from the cleansweeps of the encampments across the island. You can help reassure that these children are provided with emergency services, hot meals, clothing and hygiene every month.

 

ALL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES ARE THE SAME.

Volunteers will be able holding awareness signs and helping to collection donations from the public.
