Our 7th Annual Tools for School Drive was the most successful to date! Requests went up by 400 with over 1,200 keiki needing supplies! The Maui community rallied to
donate items and raise funds so that over 1,214 keiki in need could have the tools they need to head back to school. All supplies were distributed through Maui United Way's 31
non-profit partner agencies.
