On Tuesday, March 19, the Justice Society Club of Honolulu Community College’s Administration of Justice Program paid a warm visit to the Shriners Hospitals for Children- Honolulu.   

HonCC AJ Club makes a donation of $350 to Shriners Hospitals for Children – Honolulu.

The hospital, located in Makiki, provides quality care for orthopaedic and neuromusculoskeletal disorders and conditions.

The club sold brownies, which a portion of the proceeds were donated to Shriners. During their visit, the Club presented a check for $350 to Helene Freni-Rogers, Recreational Therapy Manager.

“The students involved were inspired by serving their community and helping those less fortunate then they are,” stated Administration of Justice Program Direct, Oscar Diaz.

Members also “hung out” with hospital patients and volunteers, providing everyone with an opportunity to have fun, bond and become a stronger ʻohana.

This activity allowed members to honor the club’s mission and vision: serving the public as future law enforcement workers.

Diaz shared that, “The students left with a sense of accomplishment, and gratitude knowing that if only for a few hours, they made a difference in the community, but most importantly in the lives they were able to share their time with, the young children.”
