     Hanapepe UCC hosts several programs with a focus on the community. If you're looking for an opportunity for community service, please contact us, let us know your desires and needs, and we'll see what is available for you to get involved with. These are not all of the programs...we'll be updating this page soon with more information as we receive it.

Community Luncheon
     HUCC volunteers each week provide a hot (and really ono...delicious) lunch to the community free of charge, and without any proselytizing (although we do say a short grace before eating). The program is made possible by a number of volunteers who come in every week to do the prep and cooking, and by funding from private donations and grants from folks like the Po'ipu Rotary. Come join us at 11:30 AM on Thursdays at the Fellowship Hall (next door to the church sanctuary, in Hanapepe, across the highway from the fire station). Donate to the Community Lunch Program

VA Rural Health Team
     The Veterans' Administration has a Community Outreach Health Team that visits sites across the island on a weekly basis, providing direct contact and support to veterans so that they don't have to travel to Lihu'e. The team is at Hanapepe UCC in the Fellowship Hall every Wednesday from 0930 to 1330 hrs (9:30AM to 1:30PM for you civilian folks), and any matter your age, or your branch or theater of service, or how long it's been since you welcome to come in and get information, sign up for VA benefits, manage paperwork, or just get some help.

Tutu & Me Traveling Preschool
     Partners in Development Foundation is a highly regarded nonprofit working to support and enrich the lives of families through a variety of programs. Tutu & Me Traveling Preschool is one of those programs that provides early childhood education two mornings each week at HUCC's Fellowship Hall. We are proud to be able to support Tutu & Me. Families interested in enrolling their preschool child in Tutu & Me are encouraged to visit one of their morning sessions that happen from 8:30AM to 10:30AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year. You may then also fill out an application; there is, due to the high demand, a waiting list. There is no cost to the family for enrollment.

Kokua Thrift Shop
     The Kokua Thrift Shop is one of Kaua'i's oldest continuing operations of its kind. It is held each Monday (with some exceptions for holidays and the church phone and check the message for the current week's status) at the Fellowship Hall from 9:30AM to 11:30AM. There is a huge variety of clothing for all ages, small appliances, books, videos, utensils, and just about any gizmo you could imagine.  Volunteers from HUCC staff the shop. If you want to donate usable goods, please stop by during Kokua Shop hours and you can get a donation receipt if needed. Since Kokua is a volunteer operation, prices for merchandise are quite low with the intent of providing resources for individuals and families with limited incomes...but everyone is certainly welcome.

West Kaua'i Inter-Church Food Pantry
     The Food Pantry is a co-op effort with the Hanapepe Salvation Army, Hanapepe Hawaiian Congre-gational Church, and Hanapepe United Church of Christ. The program gathers nonperishable staple food donations, and purchases supplementary items with donated funds, for distribution to persons and families in need on a monthly basis. Pre-registration is required; call Salvation Army at 335-5441 for more information.

Alcoholics Anonymous

     HUCC is pleased to provide space for AA to meet in our facilities. Meetings are on Tuesdays at 5:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. Please follow the usual AA protocol. This is a non-smoking meeting due to HUCC's non-smoking policy for the church campus.

    Al-Anon is the group for families and friends of alcoholics, and follows virtually all of the same protocols regarding anonymity, non-judgment, and the twelve steps. They also meet at 5:30PM on Tuesdays, but in the sanctuary building.
