Sarah is a 34-year-old female that lives with her family in Koloa. She lives with intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, and suffers from seizures. She requires the use of a wheelchair and shower chair to keep her safe. In the past few years, her physical health has been deteriorating, her physical pain increasing, and her mobility limiting.
Sarah requires assistance in all her ADL’s in which a few years ago, she was able to walk and make her own meals. Sarah and her family are in need of assistance with rent and other living expenses and humbly request any assistance available.
Through Christmas Eve, The Garden Island will share daily, front-page stories about families (we don’t use their real names) facing challenges and who would appreciate a little help.
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 the social service agencies.
Each donation is accounted for and recorded. There are no administrative costs involved and the money goes directly to provide for gift certificates to those who need them for 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 $150 or more can have their picture published in TGI.
Donations may be made by way of their website at: www.Zonta-Kauai.org or checks can be made out to: The Zonta Club of Kaua‘i Foundation, P.O. Box 3032, Lihue, HI 96766.
