With the help of generous community partners, Maui Preparatory Academy’s Project Give-a-Gift delivered Christmas joy to dozens of children in Child Protective Services on the island of Molokai. Volunteers from Maui Prep, the Will Smith Foundation, Better Together Photography, Goodfellow Brothers and a generous donation from the Lahaina Grill made it all possible for these very deserving children.
This marks the ninth year of Project Give-a-Gift at Maui Prep and the second year of their partnership with the Will Smith Foundation to deliver toys to Molokai. It has been an incredible year with the Maui Prep ‘Ohana collecting more gifts that ever before. Bikes (we lost count at about 15), skateboards, clothing, tennis shoes and car seats were just a few of the items that made up the bounty of gifts.
We are touched by the strength and resolve of the foster care families that provide a home, family and parenting for children in their care. We are also overwhelmed by the generosity of individual donors and community partners. With their support we have been able to provide some real gifts to families that need a little extra support.
Thank you to the Maui Prep ‘Ohana, community partners and donors who supported this endeavor with your time, money, and generous spirit.
Happy holidays to you and your family, and many blessings for the New Year.
