The Daisy group of the youth organization Girl Scouts are kindergarten to first grade girls who learn leadership skills through service projects and learning activities. Recently, Daisy Troop 844 participated in a national community service project known as the Smile Drive. The girls decided that they wanted to help other children have a healthy smile so they donated the 135 dental hygiene items they collected to the keiki in our programs! Troop 844's example of service to other children like them truly makes us smile.
Do Hopeful Things
As things are opening back up and people feel more comfortable going out, Spring is the perfect representation of a fresh start after a rainy season. Last year was one of so much uncertainty, and felt like a heavy rain. Although, we aren’t quite in the clear, clouds are certainly parting and the rays of possibility are shining through. With possibility on the horizon, we hope to start up in-person volunteer opportunities as the summer months roll in. We can’t say with absolute certainty what the next phase looks like, but we’re leaning into this moment by doing hopeful things. Below is a glimpse of the programs we plan to launch. In the meantime fill out our Volunteer Application Form to stay updated on the latest training and volunteer opportunities. Keiki Activities will provide the keiki with supplemental learning programs to help them master reading fundamentals, improve social skills and encourage creativity through arts & crafts and other fun engagements. ‘Ohana Support Program consists of programs that support families with getting access to various resources while they are in our programs and as they go on to secure housing. These resources include access to food and meals, supplies/household goods and personal hygiene items. FPH Operations Assistance Program will be opportunities for the community to assist with events and programs by contributing ideas and feedback as well as specialized skills and knowledge to our operations and events.
