Backpacks 4 Kids 2023

Kapolei, HI (August 1, 2022) – Back to school means new school supplies, and Honsador Lumber is
helping students be prepared with the supplies they need.

This school year, Honsador Lumber released its first-ever Backpacks 4 Kids program. Honsador Lumber
recognized that some families can’t afford to buy new school supplies every year. To take some of the
stress out of the first few days of school, Honsador delivered over 500 backpacks stuffed with supplies to
public schools across the Hawaiian Islands.

Throughout the first week of the school year, Honsador delivered 75 backpacks to Kona, 75 backpacks to
Hilo, 100 backpacks to Maui, 75 backpacks to Kauai, and 175 to Oahu for various schools in the areas.
These backpacks were provided to public schools based on the need for school supplies for their
students. The school administration and teachers can then distribute these backpacks to any students
short on supplies.

This Backpacks 4 Kids program is something Honsador hopes to carry on year after year. With some of
Honsador’s own employees as alumni of these various schools, they have the opportunity to give back in
a special way to their communities. The first week of school can be stressful for students and families, but
Honsador wants to help every kid start the school year with confidence!
