HONOLULU – The Hawaii Jaycees is looking for community partners to adopt schools for its 6th annual Adopt-A-School Day (AASD) project set for October 13, 2013. The organization’s goal is to adopt 200 schools throughout the state of Hawaii for this year. Community orientation meetings on the project will be held in the next couple of weeks as follows:

Leeward AASD Orientation Meeting
Date: Sunday, July 28, 2013
Time: 3:00 PM
Venue: The Filipino Community Center – Tech Room
94-428 Mokuola Street
Waipahu, Hawaii 96797
Honolulu AASD Orientation Meeeting
Date: Thursday, August 29, 2013
Time: 6:30 PM
Venue: Moiliili Community Center
2535 South King St.
Honolulu, Hawaii 96826
The Adopt-A-School Day project identifies the needs of schools with community partners to fill the schools’ needs for one day. The collective one-day contributions of AASD partners to Hawaii schools highlight the positive impact that community involvement can have in the success of the education of Hawaii’s children. Campus beautification, supply donations, and skills training are some of the ways that the over 300 AASD-adopted schools have benefitted over the project’s life span.
There is no cost to adopt a school, but project costs may vary depending on the need of the individual school. Organizations, businesses, and individuals interested in becoming community partners are encouraged to attend an orientation meeting or visit the AASD website Groups that are not able to make the community orientation meetings are encouraged to contact the Hawaii Jaycees to make other arrangements.
