Sign up and join our fundraiser happening on September 30 to learn more about our club while supporting our upcoming service projects!
Our club raised money from family, friends, and the community to purchase student dictionaries for over 600 third-graders in Waipahu-area schools.
These young students learned words like “kindness”… “compassion”... “nurturing”… “mentoring”… many words that describe you, our donors, for caring about young minds … for helping them grow into young adults who will be able to communicate clearly on a global level.
Foodland: Give Aloha
For the month of September each year, Hawaii Rotary Youth Foundation (HRYF) participates in Foodland's annual community matching gifts program, Give Aloha. This fundraiser help fund an annual $5000 scholarship our club award to a graduating Hawaii high school senior.
in 2023, the Rotary Club of West Pearl Harbor held its 11th annual “Waipahu’s Got Talent” scholarship fundraiser where Waipahu High School students performed various talents. They were all supported by friend and family. Congratulations to all the winners!
Polio Plus Foundation
In Rotary's work to end Polio, the Polio Plus program acknowledges the secretariat impact that communicable diseases have. With this in mind, our club partnered up with local restaurants such as Pho Waipahu, Valerio's, and Taniokas to also support their businesses during challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, 2021, and 2022.
During Spring 2023, a rummage sale fundraiser was held with lots of support from the community, including Waipahu High School, Starbucks, Valerio's Tropical Bakeshop, and Island Maid juice. 100% of the proceeds are reinvested in the community, including local, regional and international efforts.
School Supply Drive
One of the most important areas of focus for Rotary International worldwide, centers on a deep commitment to support education through scholarships, leadership development, and service above self.
On Saturday July 22, 2023 we held a school supply drive at Walmart Kunia for students of Honowai Elementary School, whose average student count is 600 students per year. We wanted to ensure the students were equipped with enough school supplies before returning from their summer break as the cost of school supplies have been on a constant rise, making it very difficult for many local families to provide their children with the necessary tools for learning.
