KCFA Wants to Help Evacuees

 We need a “count” of what donations of pastries/cookies and pounds of ground 100% Kona coffee that we can expect to receive from you this Wednesday for our “Pahoa Help Event” to be held on Friday. (all info below).
Would you please email us here…
just click>>> to confirm your intended donation? We want to meet our goals of course. Mahalo nui.

2 excellent volunteers have offered to help Armando and Karina on Friday and we have also gotten a promise of 9 pounds of ground Kona and 50 individually wrapped pastries/cookies. We need 4 more pounds of ground 100% Kona and at least 225 more individually wrapped pastries/cookies. (The Salvation Army whom Armando and the KCFA  is working with specifically asked for “individually wrapped” —think in closed sandwich bags—-items to distribute.) Maybe a couple more volunteers too?

We want to show our fellow islanders that we care about their unfortunate experience by sharing our aloha spirit with them. Thank you very much!
