Locally owned and operated Big Island companies — Creative Arts Hawai`i, Aloha Grown and Parker Ranch Store — have come together to design and print exclusive limited edition “ALOHA PUNA” fundraiser shirts to help recovery efforts in Puna following Hurricane Iselle.

The “ALOHA PUNA” shirts will be sold for $20 each with all proceeds to benefit the Hawaii Island United Way for recovery efforts in Puna.

“It has been so heartwarming to see Big Island residents, as well as those abroad, come out to support our Puna community,” said company VP Connie Kurohara,

“As many families have a long road ahead after the destruction of Hurricane Iselle, we just want to do our part to kokua with recovery efforts,” Kurohara said. “At Aloha Grown, our mission is to support local, sustain the aina, and share the aloha, and we intend to do just that.”

“ALOHA PUNA” fundraiser shirts will be available for purchase at the Aloha Grown store in downtown Hilo, 224 Kamehameha Ave., Creative Arts Hawaii in Keaukaha, Hilo, 500 Kalanianaole Ave., and the Parker Ranch Center store in Waimea.
