HUGS hosts monthly Family Dinners at our HUGS house or in the West Oahu community. These dinners are often sponsored by community and service groups, and we are grateful for the generous support. Sponsorship of a family dinner includes serving a delicious and nourishing meal for about 100 HUGS family members, providing entertainment and activities such as crafts and games for the children, as well as providing the volunteers to make it all happen.
Family dinners provide an opportunity for new HUGS families to meet "experienced" families in a relaxing and supportive setting. Families are able to enjoy fellowship and gain support and insight from one another who understand the struggles and challenges they all are going through with caring for a seriously ill child.
Create birthday and other holiday cards to be distributed to HUGS children and their families.
Collect toys, toiletries and/or gift cards for our HUGS families.
Community Service Projects:
HUGS is always grateful to companies and community groups who perform service projects at our HUGS house. Past projects have ranged from painting, refreshing the kitchen, light landscaping, and cleaning and maintaining the outdoor playground equipment, to building a storage shed.
If your group is interested in sponsoring a Family Dinner, holding a drive or doing a service project, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 808-732-4846. We’d love to work with you! Mahalo for considering HUGS!
