HONOLULU (KHON2) — Father’s Day is coming up and the Domestic Violence Action Center is accepting donations to honor dad.

A drive-by donation site was held in Kaka’ako on Saturday, June 12, as part of the organization’s “High $5 For Dads” campaign.

Folks were encouraged to donate $5 or more to assist with outreach and education against domestic violence.

“When you are a prisoner of an abusive partner or parent, it’s dangerous. Now good dads, on the other hand, are doing what they can to keep their families safe in partnership with their good moms.”

Nanci Kreidman, Domestic Violence Action Center CEO

“And since men are the perpetrators in most cases, we gotta’ get the word out to guys: Stop hitting your wives and girlfriends,” Honolulu Prosecutor Steve Alm said. “Stop trying to control them. Be a good role model for your kids.”
