For the first time, Sacred Hearts Academy’s annual Christmas tree sales were not held on campus but rather, at various locations around Oahu.

Due to the lack of volunteers during previous years, the Academy’s junior division partnered with Habilitat, a long-term rehabilitation center. The center uses tree sale funds to offer student scholarships.

Through the partnership, consumers could pick up trees or wreaths from six different locations. The locations included: Central Middle School, Koko Head Elementary School, Kalaheo High School, Mililani Waena Elementary School, Waimalu Elementary School and Kapolei Kmart.

Proceeds from the tree sales went toward the junior division’s project graduation at the end of the year.

“We’re proud of the money we raised,” junior division advisor Elizabeth Gabriel said.

As Habilitat distributed trees and wreaths, Academy students worked hard on campus. Student and parent volunteers helped with the distribution of poinsettias. They volunteered for up to seven hours over the weekend.
