Police renew annual backpack drive

By 67AM KPUA News

The Hawai`i Police Department is participating again this year in a drive to provide backpacks for children who cannot afford to buy them.

Now through August 30, donated backpacks can be dropped off at any police station for distribution to children at womens shelters, homeless shelters and transitional housing facilities throughout Hawai`i Island.

This is the sixth, consecutive year that the Police Department has partnered with HOPE Services to provide children in need with backpacks, which are the most requested non food items for Hawai`i charities.

Hope Services, formerly known as the Office of Social Ministry provides a continuum of homeless and transitional programs from outreach to emergency shelters, including permanent supportive housing placements.
