My years as a school counselor, frustrated with children not having what they needed, sparked the idea that led to developing Keiki Cupboard. I love being a part of channeling resources straight into the schools and into the hands and backpacks of those who most need help.
It's been awesome,
and Keiki Cupboard is doing it--all volunteer, 100% donations go straight to the children.

The Great!

I am a 6th grade special education teacher who has sent several of my students to the counselors to get supplies from Keiki Cupboard. Some of my students have experienced life circumstances that would stop many adults from persisting and yet they keep coming to school and keep trying to overcome the academic, economical, and social issues that make learning so difficult for them. I have often spent my own money trying to make sure my students have the supplies they need for school. Keiki Cupboard has been there to provide when I just can't cover for all of them. I appreciate the extra support for my students and my students appreciate the fact that there are people who care enough to help them have what they need to participate and be successful in school. I have had students pick up shoes, locks for lockers, backpacks, binders, notebooks, etc. It is convenient to have on campus. I hope the program will continue becasue with the economic downturn lately, we have students who sure need the assistance. THANK YOU KEIKI CUPBOARD!!!

100% of donations go to stocking the cupboards. All the rest is volunteer. There are a few Angel donors who pay specifically for office supplies, and other minor expenses.

Keiki Cupboard is filling a real need in the schools, and the children directly receive their supplies without red
tape. In many instances, the teacher themselves would provide supplies out of their own (shrinking) pocketbooks.

An organization of good will, and good cheer.

Keiki Cupboard has grown from an idea over lunch to a fully functional organization in just a few short years with cupboards in 10 schools! I have seen the process and dedication of the all volunteer board and wonderful volunteers that make this program work.

It is the generosity of
those who are able, that can make a huge difference in those who are unable. Something as simple as a backpack, pencils and paper or a pair of shoes can make this difference in a child that has none.

Keiki Cupboard, with the help of teachers and counselors, can give these items to the child in need on the spot. No red tape. No forms to fill out. It's a win-win situation for all!

I have watched this program go from an idea to a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and grow from 1 school to 10 (and it's still growing!). I have personally shopped for items and stocked the cupboards. When I am at the schools, the counselors cannot express their appreciation enough. They all recognize how this simple concept has made a difference in so many children!

Every child should feel worthy, and one cannot when they don't have the hygeine, clothes or school supplies to spend a proper day at school. Keiki cupboard fills greatly needed support for the child to succeed.

As President and founding partner of Keiki Cupboard it is a continuous joy to hear the stories of how the supplies we provide touch the lives of the children who receive them. At Keiki Cupboard (an all volunteer organization) we believe that no child should lack the basic tools for integration into their academic environment and we are proud to be able to help make school a place where children's needs are met. We are so grateful for the donations that we receive that make this possible, and for the concerned and attentive staff at the schools that go above and beyond their job descriptions to see that the right supplies get into the hands of the children that need them!

Keiki cupboard is an asset to our school, Iao Intermediate. Many children are able to get the supplies that they need but cannot get due to the economic crisis their parents are struggling to survive. It is confidentail, discreet, and the look on a student's face when they get what they need is priceless. The only part that is hard to keep up is the shoes. There never seem to be enough of the right sizes, and so many students have the need.

As a middle school counselor on Maui, I have witnessed first-hand how the Keiki Cupboard has assisted students in need. After the tsunami hit in March 2011, a 6th grader was living on the beach and her family lost of their belongings to the storm. The very next day this student was identified and brought to the counseling department where we provided her all the needed supplies from the Keiki Cupboard.
