The Giving Machine

Give back. Light the World with Love.

‘Tis the season for giving! Give back to the community of Hawai’i by donating much-needed items to Family Programs Hawaii.

Imagine swiping your credit card at a vending machine—but instead of buying a candy bar for yourself, you’re buying a travel bag for a child in care who is in transition between foster homes. Or lunch for siblings separated by the foster care system. Household items to help run the State’s only shelter that houses brothers and sisters together in the same home. Or arts and crafts for keiki and youth in shelter. And even a car seat to help transport siblings on their way to a visitation to stay connected. The Giving Machines provide a way for people to help those in need and make the Christmas season a little more meaningful for themselves and for countless others.

As a part of a nationwide campaign, the Giving Machine is back again in Hawaii. And this year, Family Programs Hawaii has been selected to be a recipient of the donations. All we need is YOU – please select one of our five items and help strengthen youth in care!

If you can’t make it to Pearlridge Center, please donate online to help us achieve our mission. Only with YOUR help, can we succeed in providing our keiki and youth in care the opportunity to reach their highest potential. Donate today to help transform the life of a child. YOU can make a difference!
