Hilo, HI (Feb. 18, 2015) — A firm believer in helping our local community thrive, Ohana Fuels recently donated $4,815.51 to Family Programs Hawaii through its “Fuel Up. Do Good.” community giving program.

Contributions provided by Ohana Fuels will be used to support Hawaii Family Programs’ Project Visitation, a program that utilizes community volunteers to facilitate monthly visits for siblings who have been separated through the foster care system so they can stay connected.

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

“We greatly appreciate the generosity of President Haynes and his Ohana Fuels and parent company Hawaii Petroleum for their contributions and support,” said Connie Sizemore, Development Director for Family Programs Hawaii. “In a testament of corporate and non-profit sectors partnering together, Ohana Fuels is able to help the most vulnerable individuals and families in our community.”

Family Programs Hawaii is a non-profit agency dedicated to serving children and families involved in the foster care system. Project Visitation, introduced to East Hawaii two years ago, has been making a significant impact on the lives of foster siblings placed in different homes by helping them maintain relationships through visits.
