Hawaii Mom Blog: Central Pacific Bank & The Salvation Army's Angel Tree




December 10, 2019

Central Pacific Bank & The Salvation Army's Angel Tree

Disclosure: this giving experience was funded by our sponsor. 

Thanks to the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program and community supporters like Central Pacific Bank (CPB), thousands of Hawaii's keiki and kupuna in need will receive what they wished for this holiday season. 

You can help too by stopping by one of CPB's branches island-wide and selecting one or more angel tags like the one you see pictured above.  

Each tag has a description of a recipient in need (age, gender) and a suggested gift for this person. All you have to do is purchase the gift and drop it off at the branch with the tag, and you have just fulfilled the holiday wish for someone who will get to experience the joy of the holidays on Christmas day. 

CPB invited us to experience the Angel Tree program at Kahala Mall.  I decided to bring the twins with me, as I feel it is important for them to learn about the spirit of giving to others in need, especially during the holiday season. 

We decided to select four tags, and off we went with our CPB reusable shopping bag and monetary donation (both were generously provided by CPB).

It didn't take us long to locate the gifts that were requested. They had fun 'hunting' for the items we needed to find.

After we made our purchases, we returned to the branch and placed the gifts in the area with all of the other donations already received by the bank.  The boys were amazed at how many gifts there were!

We were treated to refreshments from one of CPB's small business clients - Popoki + Tea. They may sound familiar to you, as they have been hosting kitty and boba pop ups periodically around town, and they are opening a cat cafe in Kaimuki soon. 

CPB will be accepting gift donations through Friday, December 13, 2019, and monetary donations through December 31, 2019.  You can also donate online at https://fundraise.salvationarmyhawaii.org/team/269260.
