Collection of school supplies | News, Sports, Jobs
Pukalani resident Brayden Kitagawa collects donations of school supplies August 6 during a Maui Classic Cruisers event at Peggy Sue’s in the Azeka Mall.
The supplies were collected as part of the 10th annual Tools 4 school drive to provide school supplies to students in need.
Kitagawa, an eighth-grader at Kalama Middle School, took on the community service project after being introduced to the effort by council member Yuki Lei Sugimura.
He said he’s seen how a lack of school supplies can distract classroom learning when students ask to borrow pencils or erasers.
