“Therapy Backpacks” Donated to the FRIENDS

BISAC (Big Island Substance Abuse Council) knows how stressful it can be for a child who is being removed from their home… or one returning to their home after being in Foster Care.  These “Therapy Bags” contain a Stuffed Animal”, some kind of activity (like a coloring book and crayons) and more.  The children now have something that is “just their own” to keep with them.  Mahalo, BISAC!

Friends of the Zoo Help the FRIENDS!

It’s great when one local non-profit can help another… and that’s what the Friends of the Zoo did when they donated really cute plush frogs to the FRIENDS.  Keiki visiting the Center can select one of these frogs as their special item.  Mahalo Friends of the Zoo!
