This past weekend, the Waiākea Kōkua Initiative was at Windward Mall in support of The Laulima Giving Program by Keiki O Ka Aina Family Learning Center and KHON2 News.
The audience was treated to live music by talented young local entertainers including Hawai'i's first boy band Crossing Rain and more! Attendees also had the opportunity to pick the winner of a gingerbread house competition between local high schools and visit a free Winter Wonderland holiday trees and lights display as part of the festivities.
This event is held each year and helps to to raised funds for The Laulima Giving Program. Donations are used to purchase needed items such as school supplies, clothes, slippers, shoes, household items, medical expenses, bedding supplies, and gift cards. These are then distributed directly to the keiki, kupuna, and 'ohana.
