Aloha,

I'm Beth Mehau, Executive Director of The Pantry 501c3, which includes Mama's House Thrift Store in Waimea on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Our thrift store is the central and most visible component in our efforts to strengthen our community through work opportunity, workforce development, rehabilitation and prevention.

My husband Tom tells me that as a child growing up in Waimea he would often hear a phrase from his elders:

"You shame, you starve."

Ever heard that one before? It was a kupuna's way of urging a child to speak up and not be shy. Just as the "squeaky wheel gets the grease", our elders knew that if you don't let people know you need help, you probably won't get the help you need.

The Pantry/Mama's House is in transition, and we need your help. We are not "shame" to ask because we know that the work we are doing is saving lives.

Please consider investing in our community by investing in our programs as we move Mama's House to a new location and renew our efforts to help families in North Hawai'i. Your tax-deductible contribution of $100, $500 or $1,000 will have a direct and lasting impact on the people in our community.

A new location will improve visibility for the store and access new customers, which will increase the revenues that make our business sustainable, empowering Mama's House to support the programs and the people depending on them.

In an idyllic setting like Waimea, it's hard to imagine that anything could possibly be wrong -that there's a family fighting the chaos of addiction, a young mom squeezing pennies to feed her kids, or a dad struggling to rebuild his life so he can reconnect with his family.

We've seen people at the end of their rope. And with just a little help at the right time, we've seen them find the strength to climb up one more time and get back on their feet. We can do that too, with your help.

Mahalo nui loa,


Beth Mehau
