PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY is Parents And Children Together's annual, Signature Event, focusing public attention on children, education, and the importance of family in our communities. Since 1990 PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY has been sponsored by The Honolulu Star Advertiser to benefit Parents And Children Together (PACT) and our 16 family-service programs Statewide.
PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY has become a unique event that brings people from all walks of life together. Each year more than 1,000 volunteers across the island of Oahu join together to support this truly worthwhile cause.
From Downtown to Kailua, from Pearl City to Waianae -- all over the island of Oahu -- people who care join together each year to make PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY a true community event!
The PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY Special Edition newspaper is filled with useful, interesting information for parents, teachers and kids. An important part of PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY is ensuring that copies of this special edition reach the schools and children. Last year through direct sponsorship by individuals and companies, 15,000 PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY papers were delivered right into the classrooms of Oahu Schools.
A key feature of PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY is the annual "Kid's Creativity contest." PACT sponsors this inspirational contest for Hawaii kids from grades 1-12.
Open to all private and public schools on Oahu, the contest asks keiki to share their creative writing, essays, poems and artwork on a specific topic. Teachers make the topic a part of their curriculum, using it as a springboard for thought. The winning entries are published in the PARENTS & CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY special edition of the Star Advertiser.
PARENTS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER KEIKI DAY funding come from newspaper sales (over 38,000 sold in 2014) and through sponsorship by various community partners.
We hope that you will join us in this important celebration of family and show of support for Hawaii's leading family service agency -- Parents And Children Together!
