Hel­lo Liholi­ho Lauli­ma,

If you are free for a cou­ple of hours on Sat­ur­day morn­ing (March 3 from 8am to 10am), please join us in a beach cleanup at Oneu­la Beach Park (aka Hau Bush).

Rea­sons to come:

1. It will help our envi­ron­ment. Trash on our beach­es is harm­ful to our ocean friends. Marine ani­mals can mis­take trash for food or become entan­gled in them. A lit­tered beach is also an eye­sore.

2. It can be a teach­ing moment to kids — to help them be aware of the impact of lit­ter in our com­mu­ni­ties and the impor­tance of recy­cling and reduc­ing waste.

3. You can con­nect with oth­er Liholi­ho fam­i­lies. We don’t often have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get to know one anoth­er.

4. You can feel good about it. Stud­ies have shown that vol­un­teer­ing can help improve mood and health. :)

5. Make a dif­fer­ence. You may feel like one per­son can­not make a dif­fer­ence, but if every­one felt that way, imag­ine what the world would be like!

Sign-up by fill­ing out the online form: https://goo.gl/forms/sk1NLratyp6WhLsC2

You must also sign a waiv­er which we will have avail­able at the clean-up site.

Direc­tions to Oneu­la Beach Park: https://goo.gl/maps/BEReeVEi1cL2.

What to bring: cov­ered shoes, sun­screen, bottle/flask with water, trash grab­bers, fish­ing nets to sift rub­bish from the sand, and a smile! Gloves and trash bags will be pro­vid­ed.
Don’t for­get to wear your Liholi­ho School T-shirts.
Par­ents will be respon­si­ble for super­vi­sion of their chil­dren.

Just want­ed to share this Face­book post by for­mer long­time PTA mem­ber Lawrence So (whose kids have since grad­u­at­ed from Liholi­ho).

It’s about the kind­ness of strangers, in this case Justin and Lau­ra Alford who have raised (and con­tin­ue to raise) so much mon­ey for Liholi­ho Ele­men­tary School. We are extreme­ly hum­bled by their efforts to help a school that they have no ties to. Thank you Justin, Lau­ra, and all of your sup­port­ers. We are so very grate­ful.

Also thank you to Lawrence for con­tin­u­ing to help Liholi­ho as well! (He even came out to help with War­rior Run!)
