A student’s first day of school helps set the tone for the entire year. Having essential tools such as backpacks, pencils, notebooks and more will make all of the difference—especially to keiki in need.

Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union (HCFCU), Pacific Media Group and Hawaii Island United Way are teaming up to support Kako‘o I Na Keiki Back To School Supply Drive, which will benefit students at more than 30 Hawai‘i Island schools elementary, middle and high schools.

The community is invited to drop off back-to-school necessities at any of HCFCU’s five branches by Saturday, Aug. 25. Monetary donations may be made online or by check, payable to Hawaii Island United Way and submitted to the marketing department at HCFCU’s Kaloko branch.

Cash donations will not be accepted.
