Keiki Day raises $75K

For the third year in a row, Keiki Day was a success.


For the third year in a row, Keiki Day was a success.

Early tallies are in, and Thursday’s fundraiser netted $75,000 and counting for the family service agency Parents and Children Together, thanks to a number of people, including you, the community.

Newspapers on Kauai, Oahu and, of course, the Big Island print special Keiki Day editions every year highlighting the benefits the nonprofit provides to 18,000 families statewide. Then staff and other volunteers hit the streets to sell single copies of the paper. Those monies go straight to PACT — which helps 370 Big Island keiki in its Head Start and early learning programs.

Besides raising money for a great cause, the event is always fun by letting us interact one on one with the community all morning.


And that $75,000 figure is still going up. The nonprofit had more bags of coin to count as of Friday afternoon, but even without those, the third annual Keiki Day was a bonafide hit.

Mahalo for all your support.
