Wailuku, HI (May 20th, 2014)
Ohana Fuels recently presented Hospice Maui with a generous donation of nearly $7,000!
These funds were raised as part of the company’s “Fuel Up. Do Good” campaign. Hawaii Petroleum has pledged to provide ongoing donations to local groups and charities that impact the neighborhoods they serve by creating this “Fuel-Up, Do Good” program.  Every time residents of Maui fuel-up at Ohana Fuels, a portion of the gasoline sales are automatically designated to the selected Charity of the quarter.   During the first quarter of 2014 proceeds totaling $6,871.42 were designated to Hospice Maui.
“At Ohana Fuels, our first priority is “family” and everyone who lives in the neighborhoods we serve.  So we’re proud to support the organizations and missions important to you, and Hospice Maui is one of those organizations,” stated Kimo Haynes, President of Hawaii Petroleum.

“We are very grateful for the generosity of Hawaii Petroleum, and we would also like to extend our thanks to all of the residents of Maui who patronized Ohana Fuels during this promotion,” stated Hospice Maui’s CEO, Greg LaGoy, “these funds will enable us to continue to serve Maui residents with quality, compassionate hospice care regardless of their ability to pay.”

This gift comes just a weeks after Saltchuk, the parent company of Ohana Fuels, granted $15,000 to Hospice Maui toward their Facilities Expansion Project.  Hospice Maui’s project includes Maui’s first residential Hospice Home as well as a new Hospice Care Coordination Center, a $3.5 million dollar project that is expected to break ground in 2014.  Saltchuk is a family owned company, and the parent company of Aloha Air Cargo, Hawaii/Maui Petroleum, Ohana Fuels, Minit Stop, Young Brothers, and Foss Hawaii.
