The Iaconetti family: Will, Rick, Bob, and Lori, extends a thank you for the expressions of sympathy and love from so many of Lorraine's dear friends. We all miss her very much. We are grateful for the memories, thoughts, and reflections that your cards brought back to mind. They helped soften the grief we feel. She loved Maui and its people, that's the reason we made Maui our home 58 years ago.

Parents And Children Together extends our appreciation to the Kahului Whole Foods Market. We are especially grateful for the coordination of Elyse Ditzel and her team for supporting PACT during this July-to-September fundraiser where shoppers can donate their change (or more) to PACT in order to help us promote our goal of bringing peace to Hawaii's families.
Maui PACT Family Peace Center has been conducting domestic violence and anger control counseling services since 1994. We serve families and individuals through three separate components: Puuhonua (serves victims/survivors), Na Opio Youth Groups (for skills building anger and emotional control) and Kuleana (domestic violence intervention).

With this donation, we will be able to reach more families and increase awareness of the serious impact of domestic violence in our community.
The partnership with Whole Foods means a great deal to us and especially to those who benefit from our services. Your generosity has served as a splendid example to us of our commitment to serving Maui.
Thank you, Whole Foods Maui, for joining us in this inspiring journey of ending domestic violence and promoting healthy individuals, families and communities here on Maui.
I would like to encourage everyone to "Be the Change In your Community, and in your Home." We look forward to working with Whole Foods in the future and invite you to visit the Family Peace Center anytime.
