Community Service


Nā Lima Aloha was established in July 2004 as a community service to support various organizations and agencies throughout Oahu and to support relief operations in other areas as well. Through the donations of smaller-sized quilts, we share our aloha with displaced, needy, or critically ill children and adults. Organizations we have contributed to in the past include various senior citizen convalescent homes, the Veterans Administration Center for the Aging, hospitals, abuse shelters, and foster care facilities. In the past year we have donated over 300 items throughout the island. Fabric donations are always welcome, so please contact our Arlene Adams or Linda Dayag if you’d like to contribute!

Shoebox Project

Thank you for your donations at the October meeting. As you finish projects you have on hand, please bring them to Guild meetings. We also have a request for empty thread spools of any size. This year’s boxes will soon be on their way to children all over the world, so we will take a break for a couple of months.
