Humanity Hale raises nearly $7K for Hawai‘i youth through ‘Fuel Up. Do Good.’ program
Humanity Hale’s ‘ohana, board members and mentors recently waved signs and staffed car washes in front of Kohanaiki Minit Stop to raise money for underserved youth.
A total of $6,801.48 was raised from the car washes and support from Ohana Fuels’ ʻFuel Up. Do Good.’ program, which is offered at more than eight Hawai‘i Island Ohana Fuels locations.
During the campaign, every time a driver filled up with Ohana Fuels Top Tier gasoline, a portion of the proceeds went towards supporting Humanity Hale.
“It was really amazing to have the whole community come together for this,” Charis Higginson, founder of Humanity Hale, said.
Humanity Hale’s mission is to provide a safe haven for keiki and ‘opio. They offer life-enhancing programs encompassing education, art, life skills, abuse prevention, diversity training and 24/7 trauma support.
Through contributions, Humanity Hale is confident in being able to sustain its goals of up leveling trauma support programs and near future goals of creating a group foster home and a community center for youth aging out of foster care.
There are several ways to support Hawaiʻi’s keiki and ‘opio in their trauma support. Humanity Hale is hosting its second group foster home fundraising event with a Fall Fest Fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 21 at The Bolton Farm’s in Holualoa.
