HFS Federal Credit Union raised more than $28,000 in October to support Hope Services Hawai’i house the houseless on the Big Island.

Monetary donations were collected at six branches island-wide from credit union employees, members and the community. The Credit Union was also one of the sponsors for the Hope Services Sacred Heart Affordable Housing Project units, which is dedicated to housing kūpuna in the community.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with HOPE Services Hawai’i in assisting with the Sacred Heart Affordable Housing Project,” said Nathan N. Abe, President-CEO, HFS Federal Credit Union. “Our talented and creative team was able to turn a unit into a beautiful home for a kupuna that will be enjoyed for years to come. We are honored to have played a small part in this very important senior housing development.”

A check in the amount of $28,700 was presented to Hope Services Hawai’i’s CEO Brandee Menino at the recent grand opening of the housing project.

“We are immensely grateful to HFS FCU for their generous support in our first affordable housing development project,” said Brandee Menino, Chief Executive Officer, Hope Services Hawai’i. “Their dedication to the community and commitment to creating a safe and comfortable environment for those in need is truly commendable. Together, we are making a positive impact on the lives of our kūpuna, providing them with the dignity and comfort they deserve. We couldn’t have done it without HFS FCU’s invaluable partnership. Thank you for your unwavering support and generosity.”
