Family Promise Support

Our partner church is hosting homeless families for a week at a time up to four times a year. We assist by providing dinners for the families once or twice during their week.

IHS Meals

The cheerful group of people in this picture have been working together in Davies kitchen to prepare a meal for all the people currently in all the IHS shelters, almost 300 men, women and children. This meal is prepared every month on the second Saturday by one of our six teams, each team serving twice each year. St. Andrews has supported the work of IHS for decades since its early days in the 1970’s. Our teams are ready to welcome new members. If you are interested please call Melvia (779-5388) or Margaret (371-4130).

 

Kalihi-Waena School Supplies

Blessing of the school supplies.
Many families at this school cannot afford to purchase the notebooks, pencils, pens, and other items required by public schools at the beginning of the term. We donate large quantities.
