Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i Donates Holiday Gifts to Western Farm Workers Association's Annual Giving Tree
The Pacific University Hawai’i Club, Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i, once again collected and donated toys and other gifts to the Western Farm Workers Association’s annual Holiday Giving Tree project.
NHOH has partnered with WFWA for many years to ensure families from underserved communities, including migrant farm workers, experience the joy of the season. This year, NHOH “adopted” more than 80 children and their parents to provide them with gifts such as Barbie dolls, Legos, Shopkins, pajamas, jackets, gift cards and more.
Since 1999, NHOH officers have organized the toy drive. NHOH works with WFWA to identify the children who will receive the gifts. Each gift has a certificate attached with the receiving child's name on it.
Based in Hillsboro, the WFWA is an association of farm workers and other low-paid workers and their family members. The WFWA program provides emergency food, clothing, preventive medical care, job referral, and more to those in need. The WFWA's goal is to eliminate the poverty conditions under which their members live and work.
