A New Holiday tradition from our friends in Maui


". . . I wanted to share a new holiday tradition my sister created for her family and friends.She requested for me and her close friends give gifts to the children at a homeless shelter in lieu of giving gifts to her own keiki.  

Last night 7 mommies & 12 'elves' put together 46 gift bags filled with snacks, toiletries, & books (the books were donated by Maui PATCH).

Our own children understood the idea behind the gift bags for the keiki at the homeless shelter.  There was a lot of talk as to who is bringing what next year and how to make a smoother assembly line."

PATCH thanks these kind and generous elves, their marvelous moms, Maui PATCH crew, and the wonderful lady who thought up this tradition--what a great idea!

Thank you! Breakfast at Santa's was awesome!!

We hope all our guests and their keiki had as much fun as we did at PATCH's event in Honolulu, December 13. We will share more Santa photos soon.

Special thanks to our donors: Pagoda Floating Restaurant & Catering (the venue), Lite Hotels, Waikiki Resort Hotel, Party City, Friends of Hawaii Charities, Inc. McDonald's, Jeff Gere, & K.I.D.S. Fashion Delivers and their local merchants who provided keiki gifts.

We thank you all for sharing this special celebration--what a delightful way to welcome in the Holidays!



MAHALO to our volunteer crew, Patricia, who also helps at our office, Donna & Geri from St. John at Ala Moana, & pictured above, volunteers from TJ Maxx, Kapolei: Sean, Natalie, Stephanie, Deborah, & Desmond. We couldn't have done it without you!
