Keiki are excited to read their new books from the First Book programThe book grant we received from the Friends of Hawaii Charities has enabled our program to give enticing new books every month to each child that we serve.  The Friends of Hawaii Charities provides needed funding for Hawaii’s nonprofit organizations that benefit women, children, youth, and needy programs.  Partnering with the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, the Friends of Hawaii Charities has generated more than $12,000,000 benefiting hundreds of Hawaii nonprofit organizations.

First Book provides new books to children in need addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy – access to books.
