Educational Impact

This July, we organized and distributed 300 backpacks to Tongan American families across the Inland Empire and other territories. Our Southern California cities included Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Chino, Chino hills, Pomona, Wildomar, San Bernardino, Rialto, Fontana, Moreno Valley, Riverside, and Loma Linda. From Long Beach to Moreno Valley, we sent several drivers across cities to drop off backpacks, school supplies, and care packages for families. We also shipped backpacks to families in New Zealand and Alaska. Our efforts represent the work of our community in supporting each other and sharing resources across geographical divides. Because of the current pandemic, our annual IKUNA goal setting workshop has shifted to a virtual meeting space to give support to the students during this difficult time. Please consider donating to help us continue this community building and host more of these events in the future.
