Kiwanians kokua Habitat, PATCH
On Dec. 1, the Kiwanis Club of East Hawaii decided to do a great community service for the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. The project required the club to provide 25 adults to work on an approved project, thereby giving back to the community.
This is how it works:
The project must take four hours in length, with at least 25 members of a club involved. After the service project is done, and the Kiwanians follow all the rules of the Weinberg Foundation, the Kiwanis Club will receive a $10,000 check to be given to a nonprofit organization that had been approved in advance by the foundation.
This year’s project benefited Habitat for Humanity.
“The original planning with Habitat, was to paint a house in Hawaiian Beaches, but due to construction confusion, the task was turned to a demolition of the internal cabinets, flooring and ceiling plus heavy maintenance yard work, weed-whacking and cutting trees,” said spokeswoman Audrey Kagawa.
The Kiwanis Club, helped by its service leadership club, and the University of Hawaii at Hilo Circle K, completed the task that Habitat for Humanity requested, and the $10,000 was given to the PATCH organization for their use and support of isle children.
“The mission of this nonprofit organization is to ‘support and improve the qualities availability of care for young people of Hawaii,’” said Kagawa. “The center provides child care resources to raise healthy children.”
