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 Sunday, June 30, 2013, Hawaiian Tel Federal Credit Union employee’s joined KITV’s staff and volunteers to collect “School Tools” at Sam’s Club in Pearl Highlands for Hawaii’s keiki’s. Our staff arrived with a van full of donations that our members generously donated to our 7 branches. This year our members and staff came through with bags, boxes, and armload of supplies.
“School Tool” donations were being taken at both town and Pearl City Sam’s Club locations. Together, both locations collected seven pallets of school supplies and over $7,000.00 in monetary donations. The generous donations received from our generous friends and neighbors in Hawaii, will provide 1,755 low income children with school supply kits for this upcoming 2013 – 2014 year!
Our mascots, Yoko and Kalea, also made a special appearance to greet club members and their families! Balloons and candy were given to the donors to thank them for their generosity. Both Yoko and Kalea enjoyed taking pictures with the keiki and receiving warm hugs.
Again, we would like to thank everyone who donated, because “you” have made a difference in the lives of Hawaii’s keiki!
