Puna Hawaii – Neighborhood Place of Puna was the most recent beneficiary of the Ohana Fuels ‘Fuel Up. Do Good’ program. Ohana Fuels partners with nonprofit organizations that serve the needs of the local community, and donates a portion of the proceeds from every gallon of gasoline purchased at Ohana Fuels stations in that community. For the third quarter (July 1st to September 30th) a total of $6,621.81 was donated to Neighborhood Place of Puna.
Neighborhood Place of Puna is part of a coalition of non-profits responding the Kilauea eruption. Together, they have housed 133 impacted households, and have provided other support such as emergency airfare, financial assistance, and crisis counseling to individuals and families directly affected by the eruption.
“No single organization or agency can do it all! We are better and more effective when we work together. This donation from Ohana Fuels will help us – Neighborhood Place of Puna – continue to do our part in helping those whose lives have been turned upside down by the Kilauea eruption,” said Paul Norman, Executive Director of Neighborhood Place of Puna.
Added Kimo Haynes, President of Hawaii Petroleum, “We can only imagine the heartbreak and uncertainty caused by the Kilauea eruption. As members of the Big Island community, we at Ohana Fuels feel it is our duty to assist Puna residents, and we applaud Neighborhood Place and all the other organizations for their efforts, as well.”
