Private benefactor and philanthropist Mr. Bruce Bucky of Hildgund Jewelers and The Carl & Hildgund Bucky Foundation will be donating 75 Christmas trees to families on Oahu. The trees will be distributed by Habilitat, of which Mr. Bucky has been a long time supporter. Parent's Inc. is assisting in coordinating the event and has combined their Adopt-A-Family program with the families housing at IHS. This amazing event will take place on December 14th from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm with entertainment by Mike Izon and The City Boys.
Throughout the month of December Habilitat is hosting their 42nd Annual Christmas Tree Fundraiser. Proceeds from all Christmas tree sales directly benefit Habilitat's programs, which work to empower its participants to overcome problems with substance abuse and homelessness. Habilitat will spread good tidings at five sites around Oahu starting November 30, including two new locations at Koko Marina Shopping Center and in Kapolei by the old Kmart.
Proceeds from Habilitat's annual Christmas tree sales are reinvested to support the program's important work. As they go through the program, not only are residents given a newfound sense of self-worth with their job training, but are also able to give back and become a gainfully employed member of the community. Today, Habilitat has one of the highest success rates in the U.S.
