On Friday, August 22, 2014, HiTel FCU volunteered at the annual Kapiolani Radiothon for Kids. Throughout the two-day event, there were other volunteer groups that helped with the live phone bank. Phones were ringing off the hook gathering generous donations from many callers, while GEICO Hawaii matched each of those donations during the “Power Hour.” 100% of all proceeds will stay in Hawaii and be used to purchase medical equipment, assist with neighbor island travel, and to fund education and research programs. Thank you again to everyone who donated a gift of a miracle to Hawaii’s children and their families.
On Thursday, August 22nd, HiTel FCU participated in the annual Radiothon for Kids! Kapiolani Hospital for Women and Children uses all proceeds from the event to support Hawaii families who are in financial need while receiving care.
The amazing crew of KSSK broadcasted from the dining commons of the hospital while our team manned the phones. We cheered on the listeners and encouraged them to pick up their phones and donate.
After our shift, our special friends, Yoko and Kalea, made a few visits around the children’s wing. The keiki were so happy to make new friends with our ladybug and turtle.
The radiothon was a huge success! They raised over $150,000!
