Did you know that we help babies of mothers recovering from substance abuse at our Family Treatment Services’ Therapeutic Nursery?

And this year, our Women’s Auxiliary  will be hosting a fundraiser to help those babies:  ”Steppin’ It Up  – Renew, Redo, Fashion Revue.” 

Steppin’ It Up  is a Fashion Revue featuring clothes from our family thrift stores modeled by The Movement Center, a dance company located in Honolulu. Pamela Young, from KITV, Honorary Fashion Revue Chair, will also be showing support by modeling our family thrift store clothes.

The net proceeds from the Fashion Revue will go to our Therapeutic Nursery, whose primary goals are to support children in developing a healthy emotional attachment with their primary caregiver and to maximize their development potential. The Therapeutic Nursery is part of our Family Treatment Services, located in Kahala, which provides substance abuse treatment specifically designed for mothers and their children.

Please support our Therapeutic Nursery!  We invite you to join us on June 22nd at Steppin’ It Up  at the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel. Tickets are on sale now until June 7th for $60 per ticket – but hurry! Seating is limited!

We would like to continue praying for those who have been affected by the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma. We will continue to serve survivors and thank you for your kind donations.

Also, our New York Staff Band will be having 3 free performances this coming week! On Monday, May 27th, they will be playing at the USS Missouri (11 am) and Waikiki Beachwalk (6 pm). On Tuesday, May 28th, they will be playing at the Kroc Center Hawaii (6:30 pm). We hope to see you there!

The Salvation Army has been responding to the tornado that devastated Moore, Oklahoma on May 20th, however, we still need your help. While our Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) teams are providing food, drinks, and spiritual support to both survivors and first responders, the need is still high.

We sincerely appreciate the support that you have displayed online on our Facebook and Twitter – it is because of you that we are able to continue helping provide relief for all those affected.

If you would like to support The Salvation Army’s disaster relief efforts for the Oklahoma tornado, you can donate:

  • A $30 donation provides one food box, containing staple foods for a family of four, or one household cleanup kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets and other cleaning supplies
