News Anchors Hit Streets for "Kids Day"

HONOLULU (KHNL)- Extra! Extra! Read all about it! A special edition of Honolulu's biggest daily comes out to benefit kids. Nearly 1,000 volunteers were stationed at street corners across the island this morning to sell the special edition newspapers.

At the corner of Kapiolani Blvd and South Street we found our own Paul Drewes and Steph Lum. At Nimitz Highway and Pu'uhale Road, our Diane Ako was pounding the pavement. And at Tamarind Square, Mayor Mufi Hannemann and KSSK's Sweetie Pacarro were selling.

The money supports PACT- Parents and Children Together. PACT is a private, nonprofit family service agency with more than three decades of community service, dedicated to promoting and supporting healthy individuals, families and communities. The Kids Day paper are $1 each, and proceeds go towards PACT's 13 family-strengthening programs.

The fundraiser nets about $50,000, but the real value, say PACT staff, is that the high visibility helps promote community awareness of this charity.
