2014-15 is a wrap!


On May 15, 2015, we completed our 37th year!

During the 2014-2015 school year, RIF-Honolulu gave books to 4,557 students, 60 student helpers and 238 teachers (each teacher selected a book for his/her classroom library). The total number of books distributed during the school year was 16,162.  Mahalo and kudos to our entire team of RIF volunteers and supporters!

Winter 2015 Update


Our RIF team just wrapped up our winter book distribution. We distributed a grand total of 5,529 books! That means it’s time to order more books for our final distribution of this 2014-2015 school year. Our spring dates for school visits are April 13 through May 15.

Winter 2015 Book Distribution

Happy New Year! Our winter 2015 book distribution is underway and continues through February 25. Our enthusiastic volunteers are ready with lots of new books!

Our third and final book distribution for the year 2014 – 2015 school year will begin on April 13.



Updates from our Team!

Thank you to all our RIF volunteers and supporters; our fall book distribution was a successful one! We distributed books to our 16 RIF schools and completed our visits on October 17.

We’ll be ordering books and preparing for our winter book distribution which runs from January 16 to February 25, 2015.

Our 2013-2014 RIF Season

We just completed our 2013-2014 RIF season! Our RIF volunteers visited the 16 RIF schools in the fall of 2013, and winter and spring of 2014.

Because of our generous supporters, in addition to offering the children their selection of a book at each of our classroom visits, we also provided “grab bags” from which the children selected a second book! We distributed a total of 23,866 books during the past school year! Our 2014-2015 RIF season begins this September!
