Honolulu Rotary Club, which recently earned a $10,000 grant from the Weinberg Foundation, is donating it to the Girl Scouts for Camp Paumalu on the North Shore.

The Weinberg Friends grant comes from the club’s Oct. 24 work project at the Salvation Army Family Treatment Services facility in Kaimuki. After the Rotarians met the foundation’s requirements for workday participation, they receive the grant, which they can apply to a charity of their choice.


“We wanted to refurbish some of the camping sites,” explained member Jim Rudosky. “New tent platforms also have to be built and it needs new mattresses and safety equipment, such as CPR machines.”

The aging camp, located three miles mauka of Sunset Beach, served more than 2,000 Girl Scouts and other campers this past year with a variety of programs and experiences. Churches, schools and other nonprofits organizations also used the facility.
