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.

The Great!

Watching the Universe provide, when all looked like there was no way. The generosity of our donors is astonishing, and the foundation of hopefulness.

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.

Keiki Cupboard is an extreme success with getting needy middle school students from Iao Intermediate the essential supplies that they need. I have the pleasure of putting a smile of the faces of many students by replacing their broken, worn out shoes with new ones. I have also been able to take care of thoses students that cannot afford school supplies. We are very grateful for the help that Keiki Cupboard gives us!

At Iao School, the Keiki Cupboard is a wonderful addition. Many of our students are homeless, disadvantaged, etc. The Keiki Cupboard is a quick and confidential way to get school supplies, clothing and other necessities to our students. I am thankful to have this organization in our school.

As a behavioral health specialist working in Maui public elementary schools, I've worked with at risk kids who have emotional needs and also sometimes very real needs for supplies. Through the keiki cupboard, I've helped kids get slippers, school supplies, and other items - if I see that they need something, I can get it for them instantly and easily so that they have what they need for their school day immediately. It's really helpful.
