We kicked off our July 2019 year of service with a drive to provide much needed school supplies to our Maui Teachers and their students by pairing up with Wishing Well a nonprofit group who collects supplies year round then gives them to teachers who distribute in their class rooms to children in need. Our club started with personal donations and neighborhood drives through "Kula Next Door" whose neighborhoods opened their hearts and sent items through Amazon, or drop offs for the project. A huge amount of supplies was then given to Sarah Sorenson of Wishing Well to distribute to the teachers in need at our schools on this side of the island. Our Rotary club then wrapped up with a collection at Office Max ( many thanks to the great staff there for supporting our Ohana) yesterday August 3rd, and collected more supplies from great hearted people coming to shop. One lovely lady stopped at our table, asked who these supplies were going to and on learning the mission, she softly said...…." I was one of those keiki" and donated a load of supplies....What an example of paying it forward and keeping the goodness rolling for others.
We are proud to serve as the Rotary Club of Maui. 
Mahalo to all!!
