Hello Pau Hana Families!!

As most of you may know since December 2014 the Pau Hana Swim Team has been fortunate enough to adopt families during the holidays to make them a bit brighter and happier for those less fortunate.

This year we have the opportunity to once again adopt 2 families and I hope you all want to be a part of this traditon. We are however behind the eight ball since I just received our families.
We have only 12 days to make this happen…. so don't have many days to make this fingers crossed...
 You are not obligated at all. But if you are in a position to donate something ’thank you’ so much. 
And if not but you are willing to make a card and write something special in it for the family letting them know they are not alone and we care…that would be incredibly special too. 

We are working with a local agency, The Licking County Job and Family Services and have adopted 2 families. One is a single mom who works at a restaurant supporting her 15 year old son. The other family has two children ages 7 & 11. They recently had a flood and lost most of their things.... 

You will find the families “WISH LIST” on our web with specific sizing and gift info. Y ou will be able to select an item(s) to purchase for the family.  Additionally, we listed an option to donate money to the family. 

The family is hoping to wrap their gifts.  Please put your unwrapped donated gift in a bag labeled with the number(or name) corresponding to the recipient.    

Please bring all items in by Thursday December 2nd to practice.  We welcome you to bring your gifts and turn into your coaches as early as you'd like.

We will do a last call of items on Tuesday December 7th…but we have to have these gifts into the agency Thrusday December 9th at the latest.

I know that we are not back to normal yet due to covid but I am simply hoping we are able to help out in some way. 

I have been so incredibly PROUD of the generosity our team has shown by giving back and paying forward to those in need.  So in this season of giving, the coaches and I THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for your contributions to those in need by continuing this great TRADITION!

Happy Holidays,

Your Pau Hana Ohana
