Good Neighbor Fund – Every Donation Helps Someone in Need

IMG_1786The Good Neighbor Fund (GNF) is an annual fundraising campaign in partnership with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and First Hawaiian Bank to help individuals and families struggling with poverty, homelessness and other challenges during the holidays and throughout the year. This partnership and the donations received through combined efforts has resulted in the improvement of so many lives and helped households get back on their feet.
