Adopt-a-Family For the Holidays!
(this is a team hosted event)
Hello Pau Hana Families!!
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.
We are working with a local agency, The Licking County Job and Family Services and have adopted a family. This family has taken three children into their home with no assistance from the state, a step which keeps the 3 siblings together and out of foster homes. The couple have two children of their own. Understandably, this creates financial strain for the holidays for this particular family. This is a giving family whose own children run toy and hat/gloves drives for their own schools!
We hope that you are able to find it in your heart to give back to this family in a way that is very deserving and so giving of their own. Please consider donating from the "Wish List"to this wonderful family!!
The couple has asked if they can wrap the gifts. Please put your unwrapped donated gift in a bag labeled with the number corresponding to the recipient. The parents have not asked for anything and request the children be the only recepients of our donations. However, the agency we are working with was able to find that family is in need of a sweeper.
There will be a signup sheet posted on our web where you will be able to select an item(s) to purchase for the family. Additionally, we listed an option to donate money to the family. Our goal for this is to raise enough to purchase a laptop for the children.
Please bring all items in before December7th. We welcome you to bring your gifts and turn into your coaches as early as you'd like.
I have been so incredibly PROUD of the genersoty 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!
Your Pau Hana Ohana
