Christmas is a time when giving to others takes a front-row seat in our lives. The needs of others become known, and our compassion reaches out and overflows on others. This year, several of our keiki were chosen to participate in the "Shop With a Cop" event.
We would like to extend a big mahalo for the generosity of the following agencies for providing our children with a happy and joyful Christmas season: Maui Police Department, Kiwanis Club of Kahului, Kiwanis Club of South Maui, Kmart, Akimeka and Delta Executive Security Hawaii.
