Aloha Giving 2013
In years past, we’ve organized supply and food donation drives for the Institute for Human Services, and hand decorated tabletop Christmas trees for the elderly and for families in the IHS homeless shelter.
This year’s signature effort is making blankets to be donated to a Honolulu elderly care home. Before and after hours, during lunch, and sometimes even at home, our staff is designing, sewing, and finishing aloha print quilts to help keep our kupuna warm during the cool winter months.
We’d like to thank Scott Murakami of AlohaFunWear.com for donating thousands of fabric squares to our project.
Fifteen blankets down, thirty to go!
