Challenge Five — Parents, do you think your keiki can make it through the school year with less than five absences? Leilehua Complex schools – including schools on post – are hoping so. Why? Because each day students are absent from school, less learning occurs. Strive for solid, good attendance this school year. The challenge is on!

You Made the Grade —“The Exchange is constantly finding ways to invest in the lives of Airmen, Soldiers and their families,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted adviser. “We applaud these three sweepstakes winners for striving and succeeding in the classroom.”

The You Made the Grade program gives first through 12th-graders with a B average or higher the chance to win Exchange gift cards. These three contest winners were randomly selected from more than 900 entries. For more information about the overall program, students, parents and guardians can contact their local Exchange. Read more at https://bit.ly/2vuKB1i.

Donors Needed — Helping Hands Hawaii (HHH) is seeking donors and community partners to help Adopt A Family (AAF) efforts during the holidays. This program provides holiday relief and joy to households experiencing poverty, homelessness, extended unemployment, medical hardships and other hardships that make celebrating the holidays difficult.

As a donor, individuals select a family they want to help and are given the family’s holiday wish list and narrative describing the family’s current situation. As a community partner, businesses can display paper ornaments on their Wishing Tree and serve as an AAF gift collection site. Ornaments list different types of items needed by families. AAF’s goal is for every participating household to receive gifts before Christmas, so families can be inspired for the new year.

Donors must submit a Donor Information Form to AAF@helpinghandshawaii.org, so AAF staff can match them with participating families beginning in mid-November. The deadline to sign up as a donor and be matched with a family is Wednesday, Dec. 5. The deadline to drop off gifts for families is Saturday, Dec. 8 at HHH located at 2100 N. Nimitz Hwy. HHH is open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with extended hours through 6:30 p.m. from Dec. 3 through Dec. 7. Additionally, it will be open on the following Saturdays from 8 a.m. to Noon: Nov. 17, Nov. 24, Dec. 1 and Dec 8.

Scammers —The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is warning military shoppers about scammers offering to broker the sale of used cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats and boat engines through the Department of Defense retailer using the name “Exchange Inc.” Read more about this at https://bit.ly/2OSJMaF.
