Salvation Army’s Family Treatment Services facility in Kaimuki received a recent face lift from Honolulu Rotary Club members who cleaned and painted the outside of two buildings, cleared away branches, trimmed shrubbery, fixed an irrigation system and repaired windows.

“Most of the people who seek this facility frequently deal with drug issues and challenges,” said Rotarian Jim Rudosky of Hawaii Kai. “This center helps residents to rehabilitate their lives and learn life skills along with coping skills to deal with life’s challenges.


“We created gardens for the women and children to take part in gardening activities - it can be therapeutic,” he added. “The residents were glad to see the improved landscape.”

This service project qualified the club for a $10,000 Weinberg Friends grant, which the Rotarians then donated to the Girl Scouts’ Camp Paumalu on the North Shore - another facility in need of TLC.
