My friend Billy Pratt put it best when Mel first kicked off…
Aloha fellow Watermen,
Makaha Junior Lifeguards 2022…Mahalo in advance for your help next year!
This past week, the City and County of Honolulu hosted a one week only Jr Lifeguard Program to Keiki ages 12- 17 This program, operated by City and County of Honolulu lifeguards, focused on the dangers of the ocean, how to recognize and respond to drownings, how to be safe around the ocean, administer CPR, and participate in lifeguard training workouts.
The program was a success.
However, the need is great to continue the program and continue to educate the keiki in our community and get them involved with ocean safety awareness.
The Mauka to Makai Makaha Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation, would like to continue the Jr. Lifeguard program for the rest of the summer.
Therefore, we are seeking monetary donations to fund the program for the following weeks:
Dates left…July 5-8, July 11-15, July 18 – 22, and July 25 – 29, 2022
The budgeted costs for each week is $6,500.00. This includes insurance, educator fees, ocean safety equipment rentals, CPR/AED equipment rental, snacks, lunch (Fridays), and program uniforms.
Thank you for your time and consideration of donating to continue the program.
Please feel free to contact Melvin Pu’u, President and Director at (808)478-9086 with any questions in regard to the program, budget, or foundation information.
