Par­adise Roller Girls will host a back­pack do­na­tion drive to sup­port lo­cal chil­dren in the fos­ter care sys­tem dur­ing its first home match from 3:30-8 p.m. May 5 at AfookChi­nen Civic Au­di­to­rium.

East Hawaii’s roller derby league is ask­ing the Hilo com­mu­nity for con­tri­bu­tions of gen­tly used back­packs, lug­gage, booster seats and car seats.

“We wanted to find a way our com­mu­nity could con­trib­ute in a pos­i­tive way,” said Par­adise Roller Girls mem­ber Ali­son Wag­ner. “These chil­dren are deal­ing with dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances, and this is one small way we can im­prove the sit­u­a­tion.”

PRG will de­liver do­na­tions to Catholic Char­i­ties Fam­i­lies Re­sources Pro­gram for dis­tri­bu­tion. For more in­for­ma­tion, email par­adis­erol­ler­girls@gmail.com.
