How your Donation helps HOPE
HOPE Services Hawaii depends upon the generosity of the community to meet the needs of the families and individuals we serve. 100% of these private donations go directly to client services. We also receive in-kind donations through volunteerism and non-cash items, for example 3,390 individual meals were donated to HOPE since January 2011 to today. (Volunteers also prepared the meals and brought them to our program sites for our outreach consumers and shelter residents.) Each gift, whether it is monetary or your time and effort is greatly appreciated and provides meaningful assistance!
