IHS Wish List

At IHS, we provide the necessities. Whether it’s backpacks for school children, diapers for infants or clothes for the elderly, these essentials improve the quality of life of those living in poverty. Your help with any of the following items will be given directly to an individual or family in need within IHS' care.

Community Drives

Complete this form and send it to Volunteer@IHShawaii.org to host a goods drive. All donated items go directly to IHS clients, free of charge. 

Many of these items are often packaged to create welcome home gift baskets, toiletries kits and back-to-school sets in which we must have enough items to produce about 20 to 50 at a time. Groups can help purchase enough supplies and assemble these for distribution. Gift cards from stores such as Walmart, Target and Ross and cash donations help greatly too. 

Donation Drop Off: Kaaahi Women & Family Shelter (546 Kaaahi Street). 8 am to 4 pm. You may unload items at the donation garage/drop off center on side of the building on Kaamahu Place.
