The administration and counselors as well as the faculty and staff that work directly with students at Waihe'e Elementary School feel very BLESSED that Keiki Cupboard has chosen to be a part of our Warrior 'Ohana. Since Keiki Cupboard reached out to our school two years ago and began stocking our cupboard, we have HAPPIER, healthier students, families and teachers on campus. We can say that ALL students on campus have the supplies that they need, our students are ALL wearing footwear DAILY and have the basic necessities needed to feel good about his/herself. Because Keiki Cupboard has provided for families in time of need, we now have these families giving back to help others. WE are very APPRECIATIVE and THANKFUL for ALL Keiki Cupboard provides our Waihe'e Keiki! Because of Keiki Cupboard, it definitely helps us to focus on our vision: In the spirit of 'Ohana, we strive for excellence! Mahalo Keiki Cupboard for being such a vital part of our Waihe'e School 'Ohana!
On behalf of the first graders at Waihe`e School, we would like to thank Keiki Cupboard for all that you do. Your assistance to the schools are invaluable.
Your organization has helped make our needier little ones feel special and ensure a positive start to their school year by providing them with many of their basic school supplies.
We look forward to your continued support in the years to come.
As a Kindergarten Kumu at Waihe'e Elementary, I am appreciative of the program Keiki Cupboard. This program has supplied my students, as well as others, with school supplies that they were missing so that they could be successful in the classroom. It also helped me as a teacher not have to worry about purchasing the missing supplies so that my student(s) would not feel left out. What an amazing program to be apart of. I am thankful that it is at our school.
As a teacher here on Maui, the Keiki Cupboard is a welcomed and valuable resource to our students' success in education. The Keiki Cupboard has been able to provide the essential items for young children to ensure their academic success. Due to the ever changing and difficult economy that we live in, our students are not always equipped with the right tools to aide in their learning. Often times, their parents have to decline purchasing school supplies just so that they can provide for their families. Keiki Cupboard makes it possible for each kid to feel confident and not worry about the stressors of life, but rather focus on gaining the knowledge and power to grow in their learning. *Mahalo*
Iao School is extremely grateful to Keiki Cupboard. It has helped less fortunate students have the necessary supplies for their classes as well as provided some with clothing and shoes. Seeing the look on many of our student's faces when they recieve their supplies brings me, as a counselor, great joy. I can't thank Keiki Cupboard enough!
KC is an AMAZING organization!! I can't tell you how fortunate we are to have them helping our students to get the much needed supplies that some of our families can't afford. Thank you KC for all that you do for our community!!
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.
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!!!
As a counselor, I find the KC an important, very much appreciated, and timely resource. Mahalo nui loa!
