Lunalilo Home caring for kupuna, preserving a legacy

LOCATION
Honolulu, Hawaiʻi

ORGANIZATION
Lunalilo Home

GIVEBACK TYPE
Native Hawaiian Well-Being

DETAILS
On DAWSON’s National Day of Service in 2018, more than 50 volunteers representing the DAWSON Hawaiʻi ʻohana joined hands to build and plant 12 garden plots for Lunalilo Home, a nonprofit that serves Hawaiʻi’s kūpuna (elders). Today, the garden is yielding a bounty of produce that helps nourish Lunalilo Home’s residents and thousands of kūpuna that receive meals through Lunalilo Home’s meal delivery service. In 2020, DAWSON provided Lunalilo Home with a donation of seed funding to expand its capacity for meal delivery to feed more kūpuna across the island of Oʻahu.

Founded more than 130 years ago, Lunalilo Home’s mission is to perpetuate the legacy of its founder King William Charles Lunalilo to honor, tend to, and protect the well-being of elders.
