Many toys were donated for keiki throughout the day. Anything and everything is a good thing to give. Towels, toys, clothes, home supply items, bedding — so many items are needed.

This season, the giving event focused on the struggles that families are having due to the economic climate caused by the pandemic and recent inflation increases. But, they also focused on families and keiki who experience abuse and trauma.

Cash and credit card donations are being accepted as well.
