On Wednesday, December 07, 2011, Lensia Glover, a senior at Hālau Kū Māna Charter School, dropped off 7 huge boxes of clothing from a clothing drive she organized especially for the homeless keiki and families of the Ka Pa‘alana Traveling Preschool and Homeless Education Program.
Lensia contacted Ka Pa‘alana in August and has been working steadily to design her donation drive project. She has gone above and beyond with this project as she is doing not one, but four donation drives for the preschool. In November, she collected clothing of all sizes. In December, she is focusing her efforts on gathering canned food and toys. In the new year, she will be collecting school supplies and books for the first month and baby items for the second month.
Ka Pa‘alana would like to thank Lensia and her family for their support and dedication of gathering the much needed items for our struggling keiki and families.
