MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page -

Ko Olina Char­i­ties hosts its 12th an­nual Ko Olina Thanks­giv­ing Out­reach meal ser­vice and do­na­tion drive this Satur­day, when re­sort mem­bers will as­sem­ble and serve ap­prox­i­mately 4,000 meals to home­less and needy West Oahu res­i­dents in the largest hol­i­day out­reach event on Oahu.

The day of giv­ing starts at 8: 30 a. m. at Lee­ward Com­mu­nity Col­lege, where turkey, gravy and trim­mings will be packed and trans­ported to Ko Olina Re­sort’s La­goon #4 Ma­rina Park­ing Lot. There, the food will be sorted and loaded onto UPS trucks for dis­tri­bu­tion to area churches, which will serve a sit-down Thanks­giv­ing feast and/or de­liver meals to those un­able to travel.

Two or­ga­ni­za­tions and 18 churches in Ewa Beach, Pearl City, Waipahu, Kapolei, Nanakuli, Wa­ianae and Maili are vol­un­teer­ing their fa­cil­i­ties and man­power. In ad­di­tion, the U.S. VETS shel­ter in Kalaeloa will ac­cept do­na­tions of used ties, suits, jack­ets, of­fice at­tire and toi­letries for its res­i­dents. Call Lor­raine Ger­shun at 387-9284 to ar­range for de­liv­ery prior to the Nov. 20 event, or call the main of­fice at 682-9000.
