Shoeboxes loaded with gifts for keiki

Mia Rose Daly

Mia Rose Daly, a senior at King Kekaulike High School, chose the nonprofit humanitarian aid organization Samaritan’s Purse “Operation Christmas Child” as her senior project. The effort provides school supplies, personal hygiene items, clothes and toys for children in poverty-stricken nations. These items are packaged in shoeboxes for distribution abroad. Daly collected donations that made up 81 shoeboxes, which she recently brought to Hope Chapel in Kihei where volunteers had collected approximately 825 more shoeboxes.
