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.

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!

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!
