CHILDREN'S CONVENTION

March 31, 2020

 

Dear Members and Friends of JASH.

The Japan America Society of Hawaii needs your help. Our organization’s finances are severely impacted due to the cancellation and postponements of our vital fund-raising programs resulting from the COVid19 Crisis.

If you have not yet renewed your membership for 2020, we ask that you act now to renew your membership. We also implore you to consider donating additional funds to JASH to help sustain our organization through the rest of the year. 

Be assured that we are taking necessary steps to minimize our expenses. Thanks to American Savings Bank, our office rent was substantially reduced. We are also seeking increases in our credit line from First Hawaiian Bank, while we prepare to apply for various Federal financial programs that will soon be made available for non-profit organizations. In short, we are pursuing all avenues to keep JASH intact and sustained while we weather out this global crisis.  

JASH has a proud history of helping the peoples of Japan and Hawaii during some of the most difficult crises. We believe that JASH will be called on once again to lead the effort to rescue and assist the victims of this pandemic devastation, either here in Hawaii or Japan. That is why we need your help today to keep JASH alive.

Please mail in your membership renewals and pledges to:  Japan-America Society of Hawaii, 1600 Kapiolani Blvd., Suite 204, Honolulu, HI 96814.  Or you may RENEW ONLINE HERE and DONATE ONLINE HERE.  Please contact Lila Frisbie lfrisbie@jashawaii.org for any assistance.

The health and safety of our island community remains our top priority. We encourage everyone to take necessary precautions to keep you and your families healthy and safe. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Together we will continue to bridge the future hopes and dreams of Japan and the United States through our Hawaiian spirit of Aloha.

 

Very sincerely,

Steve K. Sombrero, Chairman of the Board of Directors

COVID-19 UPDATE

 

Dear JASH members and friends,

 

The Japan-America Society of Hawaii (JASH) is committed to promoting understanding and friendship between the people of Japan and the United States through the special and unique perspective of Hawaii. Since the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) was announced, we at JASH have been closely monitoring the global and local situation as the health and safety of everyone is our top priority.

With the recent confirmed cases in Hawaii and in light of the evolving COVID-19 situation worldwide, we feel that we need to take additional precautionary steps to ensure the health and well-being of our members, students, volunteers, staff members and greater community.

 

As such, the Japan-America Society of Hawaii will implement the following schedule and programming changes:

 

  • All Japan-in-a-Suitcase presentations scheduled for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year will be cancelled.

  • Spring 2020 Japan Day scheduled for April 23, 2020 will be cancelled.

  • Survival Japanese for Busy People” Classes scheduled for April 1 – 22, 2020 will be cancelled.

 

Following public health recommendations from the State of Hawaii Department of Heath as well as information about the virus and recommended precautions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we continue to implement the following precautionary health measures and adjustments:

  • JASH office will be closed until further notice in compliance with Mayor Caldwell's announcement on March 22, 2020.

 

We will continue to provide updates as we assess the ongoing changes in health risk level globally and locally here in Hawaii. Your cooperation and understanding are greatly appreciated and we sincerely hope that the situation will be under control soon.
