School Supply Drive

Now Accepting Donations for School Supply Drive

Join us in first-ever school supply drive for HUGS Hawaii, a local organization that supports over 400 seriously ill children and their families. We’re collecting school supplies now until Monday, July 15 at all HOCU branch locations for children who are currently enrolled in school.

From pencils and paper to backpacks and scissors, every item counts. With your help, we can make a real impact in our community and give students the tools needed to reach their full potential and succeed this next school year.
