Hilo, Hawaii – HCEOC was the most recent beneficiary of the Ohana Fuels “Fuel up. Do good.” Community Giving Program. Ohana Fuels partners with nonprofit organizations that serve the needs of the local community, and donates a portion of every gallon of gasoline purchased at all Ohana Fuels stations in that community. The total donation to HCEOC was $7,302.96 from gasoline sales during the 4th quarter at all Ohana Fuels locations and proceeds from the carwashes held during the quarter.
HCEOC is a private non-profit 501©3 corporation started in 1965 in conjunction with Congress and President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty. As a Community Action Agency it has a tri-partite board of directors made up of government, community and low income board members and is dedicated to alleviating poverty on the Big Island.
HCEOC provides transportation to Nutrition sites for seniors, cooks meals for the Meals on Wheels program for East Hawaii, works with the DOE on at risk students, and annually takes applications for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).
