Annual Lu'au

Aloha Parents!

Mahalo for your support in our annual Hawaii Club Lu’au We greatly appreciate your continued support and encouragement. It is time again that we ask for your help. We would appreciate any donations that you are able to give. This might be a confusing process, so I’ve tried to put together an

  1. I know what I will donate, what do I do now?
  2. How do I send my box to WU?
  3. What should I donate?
  4. Can I make a monetary donation?
  5. Can I send my child a personal box?

1. I know what I will donate, what do I do now?

Once you have bought or found items you would like to donate:

  1. Please email me, Deanna, with your contact information and donation, so that I can update our records. We have developed a tracking system so that our various committees and our Parent Island Chairs are up to date. I update this list pretty regularly, so please keep checking as well. The spreadsheet is on our website under the Donations link. (*Island Chairs, please continue to check our website for any additions to our list)
  2. You will need to fill out TWO Donation Forms. One form will be placed in your donation box and one will be sent to me. The donation form will be put on our website.
  3. You will also need to label your box with 5 things:
    • FROZEN, CHILL or DRY (Choose appropriate label based on contents of the box)
    • WILLAMETTE UNIVERSITY
    • APRIL 26, 2014
    • Parent Name
    • Parent Phone Number
    • Box __ of __
  4. Turn in to CFI
    • College Lu'au Packing List
      • Ctn# should correspond to Box Label (__of__)

2. How do I send my box to WU?

Donations can be sent to Willamette University (WU) either through cargo or mail. If sent through USPS MAIL, the sender will be responsible for paying for the package. If sent through CARGO, WU will pay for the transportation. If you choose to send through cargo, you need to contact your respective island chair and arrange to get the donation(s) to them, in a timely manner. Island Chairs will then be responsible for the shipping of all donations.
