In Partnership with Kalihi-Waena Elementary School
For many years, the Cathedral has helped to support this school where over 80% of the children are below the Federal poverty level. St. Andrew’s collects donations of school supplies, slippers, and back packs for these kids at the beginning of every school year; without this assistance, many would be kept home by their parents because they can’t afford basic supplies. Learn more about this ministry here.
In addition, at the school’s annual Christmas party each year, a unique partnership between St. Andrew’s and P&E Foods delivers several pounds of meat to each of about 200 families with kids who attend the school — typically, a ton of meat in total! See this report on the 2018 event.
