Kailua-Kona, HI — Through the kind support of Ohana Fuels, and its ‘Fuel Up. Do Good.’ fundraising program, Hospice of Kona welcomed a generous donation $5,560.91 to be used towards hospice and family support services.  Every quarter Ohana Fuels partners with a community nonprofit organization, and donates a portion of every gallon of gasoline purchased at Ohana Fuels stations in that community.  Hospice of Kona’s donation was raised at all 11 Ohana Fuels stations on Hawaii Island between July and September 2019, including through car washes at the Ohana Fuels/ Minit Stop station at Hulikoa Drive and Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway in Kailua-Kona.

 

“We appreciate being selected by Ohana Fuels for this great program,” said Laura Varney, C.E.O. of Hospice of Kona.  “The funds raised by our community — by visiting Ohana Fuels, telling their friends and families to also fuel up, and participating in our car washes — will help our many hospice patients, families and friends.”

“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. “We value the exceptional work these non-profits do to help local residents and neighborhoods. We look forward to offering continued support through our sponsorship programs.”
