First Hawaiian Bank announces that it is extending its donation collection for the Aloha for Hawai‘i Fund through June 30, 2018. All First Hawaiian Bank branches in Hawai‘i, Guam and Saipan are accepting monetary donations to support the Kīlauea Volcano relief efforts on the Big Island and the recovery from flooding taking place on Kaua‘i and in East O‘ahu. All contributions to the Aloha for Hawai‘i Fund will be donated to The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services in Hawai‘i providing direct assistance to the affected communities, according to an announcement today by Bob Harrison, First Hawaiian Bank chairman and chief executive officer.
The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services’ team of volunteers is assisting those affected by the Kīlauea Volcano eruption and the residents recovering from flooding on Kaua‘i and in East O‘ahu. The funds will be used to provide water, shelter, food, clothing and emotional support to those affected.
Monetary donations are being accepted through June 30 at all First Hawaiian Bank branches located in Hawai‘i, Guam and Saipan. Online donations can be made at www.hawaii.salvationarmy.org or by calling The Salvation Army – Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Divisional Headquarters at (808) 988-2136. One-hundred percent of the donated funds will support The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services in Hawai‘i.
Corporate sponsors such as Argosy University and Reyn Spooner have joined the bank to support the Aloha for Hawai‘i fund through fundraising events and product promotions.
First Hawaiian Bank customers affected by the flooding or volcanic activity are encouraged to speak with a customer service representative to learn more about the bank’s loan assistance program to determine the best customized financial solution.
First Hawaiian Bank’s Community Care employee volunteers have contributed numerous hours in assisting The Salvation Army with sorting donations on the Big Island and worked to assist with clean up at a farm affected by flooding in East O‘ahu. Bank employees on O‘ahu also collected boxes of personal care items donated by fellow bank employees and sent them to the shelters on the Big Island and Kaua‘i.
