PRESIDENT’S MONTHLY LETTER – FEBRUARY, 2021
2021 is shaping up to be an active year for ASH, and that’s due in large part to our volunteers. Through their many contributions, dedication, and compassion, they inspire us every day!
It’s often said that volunteers are the heart of an organization, and we agree! In all that they do, our volunteers truly make a difference in the lives of others. Juggling school and work schedules, family obligations – they always find time for ASH and our community of families.
During the past year, our volunteers have tried new things, and they’ve shown us just how creative and innovative they can be! I’d like to give a special shout out to:
– Katelyn Stenger and the members of Psi Sigma for helping us to launch The ASH Book Club.
– You Made This For Me, Little Things Hawaii, and Manini Moon – local businesses who have generously shared their talents and proceeds.
– Chris Webster, Carmen Gilbert, Matt Brink, Mitsubishi Electric, and Brandon Morita for helping to bring cheer and smiles to our families during December’s St. Nick’s Drive-By.
And if you haven’t noticed, our Board is an active, dedicated group who help in every capacity of our organization from serving on our board and committees to facilitating and being the cleanup crew – mahalo to our all-volunteer Board of Directors.
You are ALL the lifeline of ASH . . . you truly make a difference, and we love you all!
President of the Board of Directors
