The children were able to get blankets, toys and food , as well as their parents plus a lot of the homeless adults were blessed with new blankets and  gifts of purses and shoes.  I could see from the faces of the homeless that they were so thankful to have this Thanksgiving dinner and kudos to the hunting club Keiki of the Aina who set up and broke down quickly and efficiently like a well oiled machine the boys and community members like Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union High School Student Credit Union Board members from Kealakehe were there and serving the homeless their food, as well as, Konawaena High School represented by Rhiannon Fukui and Ashley Brigoli who came with me as a learning life lesson and when I asked them both about their experience, they said it was a “Wake up Call!”  and they were so thankful for all that they had in life.

Umekes owner, Chef Nakoa Pabre has been instrumental in feeding the Puna community as this past few months their community was devastated by Hurricane Iselles and the crew went out to Puna to pass our his famous Poke Bowls for FREE.  Umekes owner, Chef Pabre gave out almost 500 lbs of fish that day with hot rice to the people of Puna who had no electricity for weeks.   So to see the homeless of Kailua-Kona have a Thanksgiving dinner was heart warming and for the children to get feed with their parents was double the blessings.

So the Homeless community of Kailua-Kona were givien  a real treat on Thanksgiving Eve and from the looks on their faces they were filled with gratitude and thankfulness.  It was beautiful evening in Kona on November 26, 2014 with great balmy warm weather with tradewinds and lots of great vibes.  Big Mahalos out to Umekes Kona and the Keiki of the Aina hunting club for sharing and caring.
