Palama Receives Donation from Carole Kai Charities

Palama Settlement became one of the fortunate agencies to receive a generous donation from the Great Aloha Run, via Carole Kai Charities. A check in the amount of $1,500 was presented to Executive Director Wendy Abe, which was a portion of proceeds from the annual Great Aloha Run.  Additionally, in collaboration with KHON 2 TV, Palama received 50 brand new Addidas athletic shoes.

The monetary donation will support the operations of Palama Settlement, which services nearly 4,000 youth through adults annually inthe greater Kalihi community with programs, services, and facilities.  The shoes will be distributed to youth who are in need of appropriate footwear.

On behalf of the families Palama serves, we wish to thank Ms. Carole Kai and the Great Aloha Run, as well as Ms. Kristina Lockwood, President and General Manager for KHON 2 TV.
