“I cannot thank Ohana100 enough for the work they do inspiring literacy within our community. They have truly giving the gift of reading not only by giving our children books, but also by coordinating senior volunteers to read to our classrooms monthly. Our agency works with a population that is recovering from trauma such as poverty, domestic violence, child abuse, and community violence. Ohana100 and their volunteers have been wonderful to partner with and have made a positive difference in our program.”
— Kim Stewart, Director- Family Help Center
Thank you for an incredible visit that you provided the children of the Newfane Central School District. Your volunteer readers captivated our young students. The children’s interest in being read to was evident in their quiet smiles. The children’s attentive eyes were like an open door to their minds and hearts to enjoy reading for many years in their future.
Your enthusiasm to the wonderful cause of promoting a joy of reading came through brilliantly. Your happiness of giving shined through all of us.
Thank you again. You have influenced a generation of children.

“I want to thank OHANA 100 for their generosity in donating & unexpectedly planting the seed for Vive’s very first Youth Library! This has created a ripple effect throughout our building:
The children can have a space to quietly enjoy a large collection of books from various genres. A small team of adult residents are able to maintain the library. The are able to take ownership of a project that benefits ‘our home’. They are desiring to create on a system that will enable children to borrow the books and understand the US library system. It adds yet another layer of love pouring into the building in another form. The room looks great. It is inspiring and reminds of the promise of how faithful God is to us!

“Ohana100 has tremendously helped our mission of Head Start. The children have learned to enjoy books more and are aware of different kinds of books such as fiction and non-fiction. The children gained a deeper love for books and stories. Thank you so much. We appreciate what you are doing for Kipapa Head Start.
