Youths are enjoying a safer, more productive environment in Ewa Beach thanks to the Ewa Weed and Seed program. In light of Ewa Weed and Seed’s many community successes since it was established in 2002, City Councilmembers Ron Menor and Kymberly Pine presented an honorary certificate to the program last month at Kapolei Hale.
“Boys and Girls Club-Hale Pono Clubhouse continues to be our community’s safe haven,” she added, “and continues its Ohana Food Distribution program that services approximately 300 seniors and families per distribution.
Ewa Weed and Seed also has remained successful through a partnership with Honolulu Police Department and with more than 30 community groups.
Ewa Weed and Seed site coordinator Gale Braceros outlined some of the group’s recent accomplishments: “Our annual Culinary Arts Summer Program, held at James Campbell High School, is celebrating its 10th year this year,” she said.
