Choco le’a serves a special dinner to our clients in recovery
Last Friday, our friends at Choco le’a served a special dinner to clients at The Salvation Army Family Treatment Services (FTS). “We wanted to do something special for the women who inspire us,” said Choco le’a co-owner, Erin Uehara, who also serves on The Salvation Army Echelon Board. “I’ve heard their stories of resiliency and I admire their determination to become strong, contributing members of our community.”
Uehara and her team gave gifts to each mother along with toys and clothing for their children. “We won a grant from the American Small Business Championship and we decided to use it to buy necessities for the women in recovery and their children. It’s something our team wanted to do,” said Uehara.
“It was nice to know that we have neighbors that support our journey to recovery. Seeing how they want to contribute to our families’ success is heartwarming,” said Chasity S., a client at FTS. “We want to thank them for everything they have given us and getting to know us personally.”
