WAILUA — Denise looks forward to Mondays and the week of volunteering at the Ho‘omana Thrift Store on Kuamoo Road in Wailua.
“I look forward to coming here after the weekend,” the participant from First to Work said. “I like working here.”
Denise’s duties include helping put away donations dropped off during the store’s normal operating hours, keeping the facility orderly and looking good as well as other duties assigned by the co-directors Anela Pa and Rowena Pangan.
Denise is just one of the volunteers who are referred by different agencies, including the schools, First to Work, Goodwill, the Department of Labor, courts, and more. She and other participants at Ho‘omana work on developing job and life skills by being involved in the store’s operations.

What a great little thrift store and more importantly, a great way to help the special needs community on the island. Donate $1 and everything is 1/2 off. Bought two name brand athletic pants for $3 (with my $1 donation); gave $5 (all the cash I had...wish it was more!). Flora Y ...-6/12/2015
This was the best thrift store we found in the Kapaa area - mostly clothing with an array of other thrifty items. Everything is organized into color coded tags and there was a sale going on when we went so our items were half price with a $1 donation to a local charity. Sarah X - 2012
