Across the state, hundreds of Kaiser Permanente physicians, staff and family members, along with community partners, are spending Martin Luther King Jr. Day participating in a 12th Annual Day of Service, with events on Hawai‘i Island, O‘ahu, Maui and Kaua‘i.

Hawai‘i Island volunteers will be at Pu‘u Wa‘awa‘a Forest Reserve in North Kona working on dryland forest restoration, including weeding, planting native plants, watering, clearing grass and vegetation, building trails and cleaning the facilities.

The Hawaii Island volunteers joined more than 1,000 physicians, staff and families across the state, and thousands of Kaiser Permanente employees nationally, in a “day on, not a day off” of service and outreach in their communities, to honor the legacy of service left by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
