Interact Club Helps With Holiday Gift Giving

Fifteen members of Island Schoolʻs Interact Club met at Walmart on Tuesday afternoon to pick out gifts for needy Kaua‘i children. For several years, Island School has teamed up with Po‘ipu Rotary Club, Nanaʻs House and high school students from other Interact Clubs for this service event. After choosing gifts, students returned to Island School to wrap the presents. Rotary members will deliver them to Nanaʻs House for distribution at their event this coming Saturday.

Students are encouraged to attend the gift giving event at Waimea Theatre at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13. Interact Club adviser Dave Reynolds reports that it is well worth the effort to get up early for this event. "Rarely are we given the opportunity to see the results of our service first hand," said Reynolds.
