Not being able to see your siblings and extended family during the holidays is a sad situation. The FRIENDS teamed up with Epic Ohana’s High Hopes Board for a holiday “drive through” event themed “Strengthening Families and Building Memories”.
Did you know that every child who comes to the Center gets to leave with a new toy just for themselves?

The Akaka Falls Lions Club returned to the Children’s Justice Center of East Hawaii on a hot and sunny day to provide a needed maintenance service project and then capped the day with a donation of $10,000 from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
Discount Fabric Warehouse (DFW), long a supporter of our local East Hawaii community, together with Project Linus, Department of Public Safety and the Aloha Exchange Club of East Hawaii stepped up to provide hand-made pillow cases and blankets to the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of East Hawaii.
25 bright green backpacks were given to FRIENDS’ board member Kathy Romero (pictured here) at the end of the Orchid Show in early June, 2017. The FRIENDS are busy getting ready for the Back-to-School rush for backpacks, clothing and school supplies requests that will be pouring in by early July.
