Hydration Donations Sought

The following letter was sent to Senator Shimabukuro by Girl Scout Troop 383 Cadette Chloe Shimomaye.

My name is Chloe Shimomaye and I am a second year Cadette in Girl Scout Troop 383. I am trying to earn my Silver Project Award. My project, Hydrate 2 Operate, is focusing on a dehydration problem at Nanakuli Elementary School.

Dehydration is a condition that occurs when someone loses more fluids than he or she takes in. Dehydration isn’t as serious of a problem for teens as it can be for babies or young children. However, if you ignore your thirst, dehydration can slow you down physically and mentally. Many students at Nanakuli Elementary School are becoming dehydrated because they don’t get enough water in their bodies to compete with the high temperature levels. If you are wondering how you can help, you can donate 5 gallon beverage coolers, ice scoopers, plastic containers to hold the ice scoopers, and/or reusable plastic cups (please see attachment).

I will be collecting donations until July 25, 2016. This will ensure that the students of Nanakuli Elementary School can start off the 2016-2017school year cool and hydrated. I could use all the help that I can get. Please help me support Nānākuli Elementary School!

The best way to contact me is by email at chloe.shimomaye@gmail.com . Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Chloe Shimomaye
