2019 Ready to Learn – School Supply Drive for At-Risk Keiki

RTL 2019_social media

It’s that time of year again! Helping Hands Hawaii’s (HHH) annual school supply drive for at-risk keiki is from June 1 to July 31, and we need your help!

Ready to Learn (RTL) gives away free basic school supplies to Hawaii’s low-income and homeless families with school-aged children. Despite challenging home lives, we believe these students can achieve greatness in the classroom with your help.

A simple way to make a difference is with a monetary contribution at our office or mailed to:

Helping Hands Hawaii
Attn: Ready to Learn
2100 N. Nimitz Hwy
Honolulu, HI 96819

You can also use the online option to send your gift via the Donate Now button on our website. During our RTL season of June 1 to July 31, all online donations are credited to RTL unless otherwise noted by the donor.

Our Community Clearinghouse accepts school supply donations on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Additionally, between June 17 and July 26, American Savings Bank branches statewide will serve as collection points for monetary and school supply donations. All school supplies donated on neighbor islands stay there to benefit local students. We will add other community Collection Points as the information becomes available so check back to find a school supply drive host near you.

If you would like to host your own school supply drive in support of RTL, please complete this Community Partner form and email it to RTL@helpinghandshawaii.org.

A $10 donation is enough to give a basic school supply kit to a student in need, improving his or her access to education and opportunities for success. Find out other ways to support the RTL campaign in the FAQs for Donors.

If you or your child would like to receive assistance for school supplies, visit our Ready to Learn FAQs for Applicants page, or contact (808) 440-3880 or email rtl@helpinghandshawaii.org.
