This will greatly help us as we prepare for our upcoming Capital Campaign Celebration on June 10!

Unless needs change, additional money will be used for kitchen appliance purchases and more gift cards. An updated list of “most needed” will be provided soon. Those who wish to make monetary donations can write checks to “Koloa Union Church” and write “Flood Relief” in the note section. Thanks to everyone who has given so generously so far!!!

Helping Our Neighbors

Flood Relief Continues

Koloa Union Church is reaching out to our neighbors who were affected by the recent flooding on the island. In Koloa, one neighborhood in particular, consisting of nearly thirty homes, experienced severe flooding. As one woman, who attended church on Sunday, said, “Last Sunday (April 15), we had water throughout our entire house that was waist high.” All of the houses in her neighborhood experienced moderate to severe damage, and many lost virtually all of their possessions in a matter of hours, including appliances and furniture.

Koloa Union Church is serving as a drop-off center on the south shore. Church members and others are invited to drop off items which will be used for flood victims. Kahu Alan Akana said, “We will bring to our neighbors here in Koloa whatever they can use. If there is anything left over, we have designated drivers who will take all other items to drop off sites on other parts of the island for use in other communities that were affected by the flooding, including the east and north sides of the island.”

Those who can drop off items are asked to do so on Sunday mornings, or else Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to noon, or by making an appointment by calling Penny at the church office at 808-742-6622. Those who wish to make monetary donations can write checks to “Koloa Union Church” and write “Flood Relief” in the note section.

The list of most urgent needs are as follows:

Household: Microwave ovens, barbecue grills, butane canisters and propane (all sizes), rubber boots and gloves, large plastic storage totes, coolers, tarps, large black contractor trash bags, hand sanitizer, bleach, Clorox Wipes, spray bottles

Personal: Toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet tissue, diapers (sizes infant through 5), body soap, shampoo, conditioner, sleeping bags, blankets, pillows

Non-refrigerated Food: Cereal, granola, granola bars/snack bars, soy/rice/almond milk, juice, coffee, tea
