Donations Needed for Community Holiday Event

Palama Settlement will host its annual Community Holiday Event on Friday, December 18, 2015 at Palama Settlement’s Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Gym from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Palama Settlement is collecting donations for this event for items such as non-parishable food items, toiletries, new small kitchen appliances, and gifts for children ages 3 to 13 years old. If you would like to donate, please contact Donna at 848-2517 or

“As part of our mission to help those in the greatest needs in our surrounding community, every holiday season Palama Settlement puts together a festive event where the families are able to gather and enjoy in the holiday spirit,” said Wendy Abe, Palama Settlement Executive Director. “Our families look forward to this event every year and sometimes the gift the youth receive may be their only Christmas present.”

The festivities will include Mr. & Mrs. Claus bringing holiday cheer to the many families and free presents from Toys for Tots for the kids. The community will enjoy entertainment by the Central Middle School band, Tekniqlingz Dance Crew, and Palama’s youth hula and fire knife dancers. In addition, there will be food, prize giveaways, and informational booths from the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency and the Girl Scouts of Hawaii.
