Marvel, who lives with a caregiver and her family in Lihu‘e, is working on her goals to one day live independently.
She enjoys listening to music and surfing the internet, and has personal assistance to support healthy living.
This holiday season, Marvel requests any financial assistance to keep supporting her healthy living of exercising regularly at a gym.
Through Christmas Eve, The Garden Island will share daily, front-page stories about families and individuals facing challenges and who would appreciate a little help from the community.
The Christmas Fund is an avenue for everyone to provide that assistance. Donations are used by Zonta Club of Kaua‘i 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.
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 may be mailed to the foundation, P.O. Box 3032, Lihu‘e, HI 96766.
