Local charity seeks space for event

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A local charity is searching for space to facilitate their Christmas event.

The Salvation Army's Honolulu chapter is seeking the donation of warehouse space near their Downtown Honolulu community center. The area will be used for the annual Angel Tree gift drive, which supports families and seniors in need.

Approximately 6,000 square feet is needed to sort and distribute donated gifts between November 22 and December 31. A location must be secured no later than October 31 in order share details with families and seniors that register for the program.

"Last year, Aloha United Way was able to generously assist us in providing space in their office complex," said Major John Chamness, Divisional Leader for
The Salvation Army – Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division. "And,in previous years, we used space at our Kauluwela Corps community center location on North Vineyard Boulevard. However, our Family Services Office feeding program, church activities and other programs have grown and that
space is no longer available. As a result, we are looking for dedicated Angel Tree warehouse space for the processing and
distribution of the gifts for the 2015 season" he continued.

Any company willing to donate the warehouse space will be considered a gift-in-kind for tax deduction purposes. The organization will also receive recognition as a partner for The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program.
