(Hilo, HI)  May 7, 2014 – A firm believer in helping our local community thrive, Ohana Fuels gifts HOPE Services Hawaii, Inc. $5,213.38.  Contributions provided by Ohana Fuels will be used to assist individuals and families experiencing homelessness who may not otherwise be qualified to receive financial assistance from any other resource.  Without contributions like those from Ohana Fuels, some families could continue to struggle with homelessness for longer periods, as they may not have sufficient resources to pay for initial move-in costs like a rental security and/or utility deposit.

“The mission of our Giving Program is to help meet the needs of the communities we serve by supporting nonprofit organizations that improve overall quality of life.  Ohana Fuels proudly sponsors programs that enhance the vitality of our neighborhoods, celebrate our community’s success, and support local charities”, said Kimo Haynes, President of Hawaii Petroleum Inc.

“We greatly appreciate the generosity of President Kimo Haynes and his HFN Ohana for their contributions and support.  It’s a true testament of corporate and non-profit sectors partnering together to help the most vulnerable families and individuals in our community,” said Brandee Menino, CEO of HOPE Services Hawaii, Inc.

HOPE Services Hawaii, Inc. is a statewide non-profit faith based organization that provides opportunities for persons and families experiencing homelessness.  Programs include outreach, emergency shelter, transitional and affordable housing. We envision a world where those who face great challenges realize their value and self worth.
