Windward schools recently assembled more than 900 Shoeboxes for the Homeless in the ninth annual drive sponsored by Kaneohe resident John Au (front, blue shirt) and Chinen & Arinaga. The first-place prize of $500 went to Waiahole Elementary School. Celebrating the school's successful drive were (front, from left) Castle redesign director Susan Young, principal Alexandra Obra and behavioral health specialist Nathan French (with stuffed bear), students (back, second from left) Taylor Chung, Tru Souza, Micah Eaton (upper shaka), Dyce Carson, Deja-Rae Carson and (bleached hair) Sitaniselao Mikaele, plus other staff and supporters.
