During the fourth quarter of 2021 ‘Ohana Fuels “Fuel Up. Do Good” program, $6,281.27 was raised for Boys & Girls Club of the Big Island. Each time that customers filled up gas at any of the Big Island ‘Ohana Fuels locations, a portion of the proceeds was donated to BGCBI.

“‘Ohana Fuels has been an outstanding supporter of our youth development programs throughout Hawai’i Island,” said Chad Cabral, BGCBI CEO. “The funding received will be dedicated to support our West Hawaii youth, providing them with daily academic support and nutritional supplementation.

“Fuel Up. Do Good” provides a donation to the participating nonprofit organization based on the number of gallons sold at all ‘Ohana Fuels on the island for that quarter. The program started in 2012 and one nonprofit is chosen each quarter. BGCBI was the first nonprofit recipient chosen when the program began.

‘Ohana Fuels donation to BGCBI will be used towards:

  • Program supplies
  • Power Hour (Academic Tutoring & Homework Support)
  • Cultural Enrichment
  • Wahi Pana
  • Sports & Outdoor Equipment
