As we round the 2 1/2 month mark of Stay Home Kauai, we have now been case free for over a month. Our mission from the beginning was to help ensure our Kupuna didn't have to risk their health by going out to crowded stores for basic necessities. With exposure while out and about diminished and the government as well as other non-profit entities now having programs to fulfill the need in our senior community for food and items, we feel we have done our small part to help get us to where we are today and our remaining resources can be better used elsewhere (I will update this post once we figure out who/which programs we will donate to and invite any suggestions!). With that being said, we will be ending new order requests June 1st at 5pm.
It has been a great pleasure to have the opportunity to serve the island of Kauai, our home. We could not have done this without the individuals who have committed their time and money to our cause. We are sending positive thoughts and hoping for great health in our community moving forward.
WE LOVE OUR ISLAND COMMUNITY AND HOME, AND WE LOVE YOU ALL!

WE WANT TO HELP OUR LOCAL KUPUNA
A Bit of Background
We are a group of friends who want to help our fellow community members. The citizens that are senior and particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
As COVID-19 has thrown our world into panic mode, our Kupuna are in need of basic necessities. They are urged to maintain isolation, yet some don't have the necessities to survive. As healthy, able-bodied individuals, we feel it is our responsibility to use our pooled resources to close the gap and provide aid where we can.
You can help in one of three ways:
1) Donate to this site. We want everything to be completely free to those we are trying to serve.
2) Think about who you know that could use this service. Who do you know that is particularly vulnerable to this virus and should stay home? Wouldn't it be tragic if someone was afflicted by this disease simply because they needed food?
3) Spread the word, share this service and campaign with your network.
We are so grateful for these members of our community it is our privilege to do a few simple things and make a big difference to them to help get through this turbulent time.
***If there are government programs or resources available to these citizens, please let us know so we can pass it along to those we are serving!
