BASIC NEEDS OF HOUSELESS

On March11, 2020 - St Regis Hotel Princeville donate an amazing amount of sheets and towels to our store.  We began sorting and handing out sheets and towels to those living outdoors.

St. Regis Hotel Princeville also donated a large amount of toiletries and bags and we were able to put together MANY bags to hand out during a cookout at Kamalani as well as to others in need during food service delivery.
