Grow Some Good is the most recent beneficiary of Ohana Fuels ‘Fuel Up. Do Good.’ program, in which 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. A portion of all 4th quarter sales in 2017 at all Maui Ohana Fuels locations in the amount of $7,376.43 was donated to Grow Some Good.
“At Ohana Fuels we are proud to support local nonprofit organizations through our ‘Fuel Up. Do Good.’ community giving program,” said Kimo Haynes, President of Hawaii Petroleum.
Mr. Haynes recently visited one of Grow Some Good’s gardens at Pu’u Kukui Elementary School. “I like how Grow Some Good incorporates life lessons into the program, and gives students a hands-on experience in the garden, where they learn about the cycle of life, through planting, harvesting, composting, and other garden activities.”
“We’re very appreciative of this donation from Ohaha Fuels,” said Kathy Becklin, Executive Director of Grow Some Good. “These funds will help us continue to provide classes for the 4,500 students that participate in our programs each year.”
