From Aloha United Way:

Each year, Aloha United Way (AUW) provides assistance and resources to thousands of needy and underprivileged individuals and families on O‘ahu. The majority of the funding used to provide services to those in need is raised during AUW’s annual workplace campaign. Each year, over 342 nonprofit organizations receive funding from these generous donations.

The kick-off event will be high energy, with over 200 volunteers waving signs to raise awareness around the campaign.

More than raising and distributing money, AUW is working to reduce homelessness, provide more opportunity for our kupuna to age gracefully, and better prepare our keiki for kindergarten. By focusing on three impact areas - poverty prevention, education and safety net - AUW is able to significantly move the needle in the areas of greatest need by working to prevent problems before they begin and help those who need assistance now.
