HomeAid Hawaii Provided Christmas at “Home” for 80 Homeless Youth


On Christmas Eve, HomeAid Hawaii, it's board members and volunteers, provided an incredible experience for about 80 homeless kids and youth on Oahu, Home for the Holiday provided a safe environment, hot meals, and all the joys of Christmas at "Home."

“This event changes lives by giving these children something that most of us take for granted. Going to sleep Christmas Eve with happy anticipation and waking up to the excitement of Christmas morning is something I have always loved for my family. The Howard Hughes Corporation is proud to be a sponsor for this event that lets these keiki have that experience,” said David Striph, The Howard Hughes Corporation’s Executive Vice-President – Hawaii and President of the HomeAid Hawai’i Board of Directors. “We believe in proactively supporting our communities, and taking steps to address homelessness, especially for the youth who are without homes. HomeAid Hawai’i is accomplishing those goals.”
