CHRISTMAS FUND: Retiree would love a restaurant gift card

LIHU‘E — Through Christmas Eve, The Garden Island will share daily, front-page stories about families and individuals (we don’t use their real names), who are facing challenges and would appreciate a little help this holiday season.

The Christmas Fund is an avenue for everyone to provide that assistance. Donations are used by Zonta Club members to purchase gift certificates that are in turn distributed to families and individuals through social-service agencies.

Each donation is accounted for and recorded. There are no administrative costs involved, and money goes directly to provide for those in need of Christmas presents and groceries.

If you hold a fundraiser for the Christmas Fund, let us know and we’ll spread the word. Anyone making a donation of $200 or more can have their picture published in TGI.

Also, for every $250 donation given to the Christmas Fund, Hale Uluwehi Charitable Foundation will match up to $5,000.

Donations may be made by way of the website, Zonta-Kaua‘i.org, or checks can be made payable to The Zonta Club of Kaua‘i Foundation, P.O. Box 3032, Lihu‘e, HI 96766.

The following are some of stories we would like to share with our readers.

• Kihei is retired and lives off a fixed income. Kihei used to have a part-time job for some extra money, however his arthritis has forced him to quit. Kihei loved his part-time job, as it allowed him to interact with people and to also give back to the community. This year it would be nice to give back to Kihei for all that he has done with a gift card to his favorite restaurant.
