Veteran’s Day Performance by Damien Hula Halau Honors Sacrifices of Service Personnel and Families

To honor the sacrifices of America’s servicemen and servicewomen, Damien Memorial School’s hula halau performed at a Veteran’s Day luncheon.  

The festive event was held at the Kapolei facility of U.S. Vets, a nonprofit corporation that provides counseling, employment assistance, case management, drug- and alcohol-free housing and other services for homeless and at-risk veterans and their families.

Performing with the students was Emily Porter, wife of Damien President and CEO Wes Reber Porter.

“I know the kids were happy to dance for these vets who worked hard for us,” said Kumu Hula Sky Perkins Gora. “We are very grateful for all they have done and what they stand for – our country.”


Men's March Against Violence

Like we have for the first 22 marches, the Monarchs of Damien Memorial participated in the 23rd annual Men's March Against Violence on October 12.  This year, students from the National Honors Society, the National Junior Honors Society, the varsity football team, and the boys' varsity basketball team marched to advocate for efforts to end domestic violence which is mostly a men's issue.  Thank you to all of our Damien faculty, staff and students who participated in this event.  

Welcome Center Preview

As parents of Damien students, we invite you to a sneak preview of our newest campus facility: The Welcome Center.

Please join us for an evening reception starting 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 17. Light refreshments will be served.

Damien President and CEO Wes Reber Porter will discuss campus developments and his vision for the school’s future while giving you an exclusive tour of the Welcome Center.

Give Aloha 2017


Give Aloha, Foodland's Annual Community Matching Gifts Program, was created in 1999 to honor Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. "Sully" Sullivan, and continue his legacy of giving back to the community. Each year, during Sept.1 – 30 at all Foodland and Sack N Save stores statewide, customers are encouraged to make a donation at checkout to their favorite Hawaii non-profit organization. This year, Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match each donation with more than $300,000 for all organizations combined. Since the program began in 1999, a grand total of more than $27.3 million has been raised for Hawaii’s charities.

How It Works:

During September, Maika`i members are invited to make donations up to $249 to their favorite participating Hawaii non-profit organizations at checkout.

Donations to each organization are tracked, and Foodland’s matching gift is divided proportionately among all participating organizations based on customer donations to the organizations.

Organizations receive customer donations to their organization and Foodland’s matching gift by Oct. 31.
