Aloha United Way Kickball!

On August 14th, Aloha United Way held their annual Kickball tournament at Waipio Soccer Complex. It was a great turnout with companies and celebrities participating in the kickball tournament to raise funds for Aloha United Way and the many programs they support throughout our state.

Some of the companies were Pepsi, Enterprise, Nordic Construction PCL, and FedEx to name a few. Each team was paired with a celebrity, with personalities like Slick Vic, DJ Maleko from Hot 93.9, Crystal Akana from 98.5FM, and even Mrs Hawaii Porche DeBenito, and Miss Hawaii Jalee Fuselier. Emcees, Billy V and Dave Vinton from OC16 kept the program sunning smoothly throughout the event.

Backpacks for Keiki!

July 25th was a wonderful day with Passion in Action! This homeless outreach on the North Shore of Oahu provided backpacks filled with school supplies to hundreds of keiki who are starting the school year.

Thanks to many generous sponsors, Pastor Ron Valenciana, and Turtle Bay Resort, many children will be able to return to school with all the necessities.

Once-a-month-Church meets the last Sunday of every month to meet the physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental needs of many homeless and needy on Oahu. This event is at Haleiwa Beach Park and anyone is welcome to volunteer and help for as long as you are available. If you want to truly see the real needs of the “Real world”, this is a volunteer outreach to remember.

If you are interested in volunteering for this outreach or any others, please contact Jalee through Ready for the Real World at
