Each year Friends of the Children of West Hawaii is excited to be able to offer our annual Christmas Gift Project to abused, neglected, abandoned, and at-risk youth in our community. Our 2019 project is called DEAR SANTA, and this year the program has been revised slightly. Each qualifying child who would like to request a gift is asked to write a letter to Santa. A hard copy form is available from Friends of the Children of West Hawaii's office or from most of our community non-profit partners. The form can also be completed online right here. Letters must be submitted by November 10, 2019! Christmas gifts will be distributed through a "Cookies with Santa" event in December or through social workers and community partners.

If you are a child or the parent/guardian of a child who qualifies for assistance and would like to make a request from Santa for Christmas, please feel free to complete this form and submit it before November 10, 2019.

Who do you live with?

Thanks for submitting!
