Leilehua High School Key Club participated in this
year’s Kiwanis 4 Kids event by creating and collecting
donation boxes. Faculty Advisor, Amber Nakamura,
designed the flyers and provided boxes to ten Key Club
members. Each student was responsible for decorating
their box, finding a designated collection site, and asking their friends and family for donations. Key Club members Zaedyn Pagaduan, Shayne Llarinas, and BJ Ramel collected the most donations. Shayne and BJ placed their boxes in classrooms around campus, and asked their classmates and teachers for donations. Zaedyn placed her box in her mother’s workplace at M. Dyer and Sons in Pearl City; and they provided Zaedyn with lots of generous donations. After, a couple of weeks, each student brought in their boxes to sort through all the donations, and give the donations to Kiwanis member, Susie Wong.

through donations brought by Shayne and Zaedyn.
The LHS Key Club members consider this a successful contribution because of their generous family and friends. They were pleasantly surprised and humbled at how kind and giving people can be when asked.
They can’t wait to do this again!
