BISAC Completes 3rd Annual Therapy Kit Drive
The Big Island Substance Abuse Council completed its third annual Therapy Kit Drive to benefit children who are victims of abuse and/or domestic violence.
This project started several years ago with the hope of making a difference in a keiki’s life. Children who are victims receive kits to help provide comfort during a difficult time.
Each backpack includes a blanket, stuffed animal, toiletries, coloring books, notebooks, pencils, and crayons.
“Since we began this project three years ago, we have collected over 375 kits,” said BISAC’s CEO Dr. Hannah Preston-Pita.
“With continued support from many organizations, community members, and an outpouring of support at our Walmart drives, we are able to inspire change and make a difference in a child’s life,” Preston-Pita added.
The kits will be distributed through the East Hawaiʻi Children’s Justice Center and BISAC.
