HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -Howard's Nurseries and Foodland have come together to help support Easter Seals Hawaii with the annual "Lilies for Abilities." Every lily plant purchased at any Foodland or Sack 'N Save throughout the state, today through Easter Sunday (April 8th, 2012) will provide a $1 donation to Easter Seals Hawaii. The beautiful lilies are grown locally at Howard's Nurseries in Kula, Maui and are available for $8.99 each.
Howard Takishita, owner of Howard's Nurseries, Inc., found a way to support Easter Seals Hawaii. Howard has a special passion for the organization, and the annual "Lilies for Abilities" is a true gift from the heart. As a young boy, Howard was the first child on Maui to be diagnosed with polio, and it was the Easter Seals Hawaii Early Intervention program that helped provide therapy and support for him and his family all those years ago.
For over 11 years Howard and Sandy Takishita have painstakingly planted, grown and harvested thousands of beautiful lilies. Young Brothers has transported, Armstrong Produce has distributed and Foodland has made these very same lilies available to the people of Hawaii, throughout the state - all in support of Easter Seals Hawaii.
Easter Seals Hawaii is proud to provide exceptional services for infants, children, teens and adults with a variety of disabilities and special needs. Over 5,000 individuals and their families receive therapy, training and services on the islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Lanai, Molokai and the Big Island each year.
