Aloha!

We are Aleah Yano and Jayda Wakilina – cousins; both Cadette Girl Scouts working on our Silver Award Project.

We decided to work on this project together because we feel two brains are better than one and four hands are better than two!

On January 24th, we had the opportunity to assist our 2015 Miss Kauai Filipina Marielle Yano, who happens to be my (Aleah’s) sister and Jayda’s cousin in a service project that brought forth a great deal of compassion in our hearts. Marielle organized a “homeless feeding” for the KEO Homeless Emergency Shelter called Mana’olana. Along with our Girl Scouts Troop 823, we worked along side Marielle in providing a dinner for the guests at the shelter. It was truly an amazing experience. There is such a need and it’s awesome that we got to help fill it!

That said, we – Aleah and Jayda are planning to organize our own “homeless feeding” for Mana’olana. We hope to inspire other’s to participate in our project and possibly do this as an annual activity as well. We welcome anyone who would like to assist by present or by making a donation to fund this project in purchasing food items and necessary supplies.

Did you know that 12-15,000 people in Hawaii are homeless at some point in a years time? Did you know that at least 6,000 people are homeless every single day and children make up 23.5- 39% of that number? Did you know that 17-42% of Hawaii’s homeless are actually employed full-time? And did you know that 37% of the homeless are of Native Hawaiian ethnicity? Yes, it’s true – according to the Hawaii Home Project website. It’s really unfortunate… That’s why we want to help even if in a little way.

Please follow along with our blog as we share our progress in our Take Action Project! We hope you enjoy it!!!

Note that KEO encourages organizations to volunteer in creating dinner meals for the guests of the Emergency Homeless Shelter. They even have a certified kitchen on the premises that can be used by such organizations to create meals. If anyone would like to volunteer like us, please contact the Shelter Director at 808-245-7692.

Sincerely,

Aleah & Jayda
