Zonta/TGI Christmas FundThe Garden Island and the Zonta Club of Kaua’i
are again teaming up with the community to try and make the holidays a little
happier for those in need. Every year, the community is asked to make donations
to the Zonta/Garden Island Christmas Fund.
With the help of community
agencies, Zonta Club members identify families who will not have a merry
Christmas without our help. Every day from now until Christmas, The Garden
Island will publish stories about people who could use some assistance. The
names have been changed to protect their privacy but the stories are all actual
case histories of people living on Kaua’i.
Monies collected are used to
fulfill their wishes whenever possible. Checks and money orders may be sent to
Zonta/Garden Island Christmas Fund, c/o The Garden Island, P.O. Box 231, Lihu’e
HI 96766. Donations may also be dropped off at The Garden Island office at 3137
Kuhio Highway in Lihu’e during office hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

income from social security, their monthly income is limited, because of the
added expenses of moving into a new place.
They both could use some new
clothes during this time of holiday giving.
