Pacific Resource Partnership brought some Christmas cheer to keiki at the Institute for Human Services Women’s and Family Shelter and Kahauiki Village with a recent donation of $1,000 worth of toys.

The gifts were delivered to Kahauiki Village today after PRP staff took part in a whirlwind shopping spree. IHS Executive Director Connie Mitchell welcomed the toys’ arrival, which ensures children at the shelter will still get to experience the magic of Christmas.

“These toys from PRP in time for the holidays will definitely lift the spirits of our nearly 300 keiki who live at Kahauiki Village,” Mitchell said in a news release. “We’ve been teaching our children how to give and PRP’s gift demonstrates just how much they are loved and supported by our wider community.”

This marks the second time in 2023 that PRP has shown its support for children at IHS. In July, PRP donated dozens of backpacks to help prepare keiki for the current school year.

“Providing Christmas gifts to the children of IHS and Kahauiki Village was an easy decision for the PRP team to make,” said Kyle Chock, PRP interim executive director, in the release. “These children embody the joy and hope that many of us feel during the holiday season, and we wanted to make sure they feel loved and appreciated as we head into 2024.”
