The Rotary club of Hanalei Bay has adopted a stretch of highway from the Princeville shopping mall to the spa. On the first Saturday of every month you will find the regular crew out there every month keeping our highways clean. This is a notoriously dirty part of the highway because the Transfer station in just down the road and trash blows out of trucks when people don't cover their loads. We welcome volunteers to join in the fun!
The Kilauea Community Agricultural Center is a gathering place for the local community on 75 acres of farmland with a goal of providing economic opportunities for local farmers and a sustainable food source for Kauai's North Shore. Hanalei Bay Rotarians regularly weed, trim trees, and do other ongoing maintenance activities to keep the park beautiful. Like to get your hands dirty, we have lots of volunteer opportunities for you1
John Harder heads up our environmental committee which is always looking to implement projects dealing with environmental issues. An ongoing concern are the water quality and wastewater systems in Hanalei after last year's floods. Are you passionate about these types of issues? We'd be happy to let you know when our next big environmental work day is scheduled.
The Kauai North Shore Food Pantry opened its doors in 2014 with support from the community and the Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay. Today the food pantry buys about 2,000 pounds of food each week at the food banks, courtesy of grants and donations, and nearly all of it is given away each Saturday afternoon.That's about 100,000 pounds of food that goes out the door of the small building in a year.About 70 people arrive each Saturday for food that will provide them with meals for a week's meals they otherwise would go without.The need has increased since day one.There are young men and young women. Families. Kupuna. Moms and dads and keiki, too. Some are homeless. Many arrive early to get one of the first places in line. Sign-in begins at 2:30 p.m., with the pantry opening at 3:30. Let us know if you wish to volunteer to serve the community this way.
