Update: Mahalo for the overwhelming response to our upcoming community service event! We have filled all of our volunteer slots for this event!
On Sept 16, we will be able to assist Child and Family services and our community through refurbishing living spaces for two families to immediately move into!
Support for our community through events such as this one are one of foundations of CMAA Hawaii- we are fortunate to have so many people willing to help.
If you did not get a chance to sign up for this event- please stay tuned, we are continuing to plan future events and could always use the help.
If you have signed up, Welcome, Thank you and please watch for details on the event via a smaller (group only ) distribution list.
On Saturday September 16th CMAA will sponsor a community service event doing cleaning and painting at Child & Family Service’s (CFS) transitional housing site in Honolulu, in the Nuuanu/Kuakini/School Street neighborhood.
We have the opportunity to perform a community service event that could make a real difference in the lives of a few families.
There is a small apartment building in town that is being used to house families who are victims of domestic violence. They have 2 apartments that currently need rehabilitation (cleaning and painting). One also needs a new sink and toilet. Once these are done new families can immediately move in. The apartments are each 2 bedrooms and 2 bath.
I strongly support this event, with a little work, we can make a big difference to a couple of families who need the help.
Date: Saturday, September 16, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Meeting location will be forthcoming
Mission: Child & Family Service is one of Hawaii’s leaders in human services and advocacy for children and families in need. CFS is a private, non-sectarian and non-government organization that has served the people of Hawaii for 100 years. The organization’s primary purpose is strengthening families and helping them to raise healthy children. Each year, more than 40,000 people are assisted through a wide range of human service programs.
Things to bring:
All that will be needed is for you to dress for work including cleaning and painting. Shorts are OK. Dress comfortably in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty or paint stained. Work will be focused on the interior only.
Where to meet:
Due to the nature of the housing, confidentiality of the site location and its use is very important. All people involved in the project will need to sign confidentiality agreements.
Meeting location will be forthcoming.
