The Fall 2019 New Member Class collaborated with Family Promise of Hawaii to brighten up the new Wahiawa. Family Center. The team painted and cleaned to create a beautiful play area, work/study area, and a welcoming and safe environment for the families the Center supports.
In addition to renovation work, our Junior League of Honolulu Sustainers partnered with our New Member Class to provide kitchen and household items for the “New Home Baskets” that families of the Center receive upon leaving.
