For over 66 years BGCBI has provided safe, fun, and quality afterschool care and enrichment programs to the youth of Hawai‘i Island. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the agency provides nurturing activites for youth aged six to eighteen years at its facilities in Hilo, Kea‘au, Pahala, Pāhoa, Ocean
View, and Kealakehe.

“Ohana Fuels has been an outstanding supporter of our youth development programs throughout Hawai’i Island, and we thank them for the partnership,” said BGCBI Chief Executive Officer, Chad Cabral. “This funding will be dedicated to support our Kealakehe kids, providing them with daily academic support, cultural enrichment, athletic equipment, and nutritional supplementation.”

“We are happy to honor the Boys and Girls Club for its work on the Big Island,” said Kimo Haynes, president of Hawai‘i Petroleum. “They provide a great service to local youth and families, and we at Ohana Fuels look forward to offering them, and other deserving organizations, continued support
through our ‘Fuel Up. Do Good.’ program in the future.”
