Lihikai Elementary School Principal Michael Pollack, PCNC Rosa Stone and Vice Principal Shannon Cabanilla accept school supplies from Lei Enriques-Fagan, Community Service chair of the Rotary Club of Valley Isle Sunset (in truck) at last year’s island-wide, multi-club effort.
This is the fifth consecutive year that a School Supplies Drive has been sponsored by Maui’s Rotary clubs. This island-wide School Supplies Drive is one of the many community service projects sponsored by Rotary clubs on Maui.
