LIHU‘E — Hawai‘i Adopt-A-School Day is an event meant to mobilize communities in service.
Kaua‘i Community College will be holding a campus event from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the One Stop Center Building, a news release states. KCC will host a campus clean-up organized by the Pamantasan (higher education) Club.
“This is our first year to participate in such an event,” said Frances Dinnan, a KCC club adviser and counselor. “We are one of the registered organizations for Kaua‘i. About 120 schools have been adopted this year in Hawai‘i.”
According to Dinnan, the month of October is Filipino American Heritage Month. For the week of Oct. 17-21, the club will sponsor a series of cultural presentations and build a library display.
The event is meant to instill as sense of community service in students and community in support of their school, said Dinnan. In the future she said the effort may grow to include other schools.
This fourth annual event is sponsored by the Jaycees and titled, “One Day for Hawai‘i’s Future.” Its goal is to serve the schools and the keiki.
Adopt-a-School Day is an initiative by the Hawai‘i Jaycees to encourage nonprofits, private businesses, individuals and others to assist their schools on projects that might not get done by themselves.
